We stayed in Archie's Farmhouse for a long weekend in June and found it to be absolutely perfect. Really could not fault anything - location is perfect, beautiful views and only a little drive to the town. The drive to the right out of the drive all the way down the windy road to Southend (and the Mull of Kintyre if you are really a brave driver) is truly breathtaking and well worth spending an afternoon on.
The cottage itself is just lovely - it is plenty big enough (we were four adults) with two big, very nice bathrooms, comfy beds and a kitchen with everything you could need and more. Was spotlessly clean too with nice, tasteful furniture throughout.
What we saw of the estate was beautful too - although, be warned, a 'stroll' around Davaar island is not for the faint hearted.
Would also highly recommend Muneroy restaurant/tea room in Southend and Crosshill trekking if you like horse riding - a ride on the beach was real tick on the bucket list.
Will definitely hope to return!
