We stayed in Archie's Farmhouse for 2 weeks in July/August 2013 and loved it. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well-equipped for a family of four eating in every night. 2 big bedrooms and 2 big bathrooms - our 3-year-old slept in the second bedroom and our 17-month-old slept in a travel cot (provided) in the downstairs bathroom and was perfectly happy there! A high chair was also provided, as were a selection of children's DVDs, toys and books. Campbeltown is a short drive away, with a Tesco and Somerfield, so easy for self-catering. Beautiful, peaceful location and no midges. The children absolutely loved it and there was so much to keep them occupied and happy - from building sandcastles on the beach to jumping in puddles, dragging fishing nets through rock pools, taking a ferry to another of the local islands etc. The weather was fantastic, generally in the high teens/low twenties with only one full day of rain (apparently this is not unusual for the area.) We had a wonderful time and would go back in a heartbeat - couldn't praise the cottage or the family (who were very helpful and happy for the children to go and look at their piglets and chickens etc) more highly.
