Reviewed 13 August 2012

Spent a delightful Spring week on Davaar Island in the Lookout Cottage. Beautiful location. The Lookout is a World War II lookout station that has been thoughtfully converted into excellent cosy accommodation.

Stayed here a few years ago and haven't had the chance to go back but will do for a relaxing break away from all the hustle and bustle.Breathtaking views and peace & quiet a lovely Island, with goats grazing outside the window. you can sit and watch the fishing boats going to a fro with their catch and a great variety of bird life following the boats. Plenty of walks round the island and the weather was perfect a few misty days but even that was nice. You have lovely views across the Firth of Clyde to Ayrshire all in all a lovely holiday if you want perfect peace but you can still go into Cambletown for a look round, lots of history and some good shops too.

Beautiful Coach House, overlooking the sea. Nice and clean with good quality fixtures and fittings but some things not quite right eg the kitchen sink did not hold the water. Small things which did not really detract from our stay. Very quiet and great fun watching the goats at the back of the house eating the leaves from a high tree! Will definately be back.

We have just returned from a week at the Coach House Cottage. The location is excellent with sea views from the living room and master bedroom. We spotted seals and lots of birds on the beach at the end of the lane. The cottage is spacious and very clean. I loved the huge bookshelf! The farm manager (I think that was his title), John, was very friendly and even let us watch a lamb being born which was a wonderful experience! There were lots of useful information leaflets in the cottage too which we used. The kettle blew up while we were there and was replaced within hours.Just a couple of niggles..the tv was really small (but then we have got 46 inch tv at home so maybe I am a bit spoilt), a pint of milk would have been appreciated after such a long journey too. All in all, a great holiday home and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.

Archie's farmhouse....tastefully decorated, very clean, lots of space and lovely fittings. We're super fussy when it comes to accommodation and this passed with flying colours! Cate was really friendly and efficient when booking. The cottage has been thoughtfully decorated and very contemporary. Some niggly things here and there with the cottage not working but nothing that impacted on our holiday. We loved the space and would highly recommend it to anyone! We'd DEFINITELY come back

Room Tip: My only tip is to remind future guests that this cottage is most definitely on a working farm....Arc...

Spent a delightful Spring week on Davaar Island in the Lookout Cottage. Beautiful location. The Lookout is a World War II lookout station that has been thoughtfully converted into excellent cosy accommodation.

As the name suggests, the views are breathtaking. Peace & quiet, and wake up to goats grazing outside the window. Great variety of bird life. Otters leaving their breakfast of sea urchins on the slip. Fishing boats going in & out of Campbeltown Loch.

I had been looking forward to a few rainy days where I could catch up on my reading in comfort. Instead, the weather was glorious for the entire period, with views across the Firth of Clyde to Ayrshire & beyond; can't have everything!

Beautiful cottage in an excellent location yards from and overlooking the sea. Views to Davaar, Arran and the Ailsa Craig.

The cottage was well provided for, the highlight being the cosy living room with a stove.

The cottage is an excellent spot to study the bird and aquatic life. Great Northern Divers, Seals and otters were seen.

Another plus is the close proximity 3-4 miles to the town of Campbeltown which is of great historical interest. - The town at the beginning of the last century had the highest per capita income in Scotland from Distilleries, Fishing, Coal Mining etc. This has resulted in buildings of stature and fine architecture. Local golf courses are also a great attraction at Southend and Machrihanish..

The town is currently going through a resurgence with a large amount of finance being spent on the refurbishment of a large hotel with a parallel hotel at close by Machrihanish going through a similar rebuild.

There is also a fast passenger summer ferry to Ireland.

Taking everything in I wholeheartedly recommend the cottage and the area.

Room Tip: There are a number of cottages in the estate.
