Description

The Lookout is a dream come true for couples or solo travellers looking to get away from it all on their own west coast adventure. With breathtaking sea views and an abundance of wildlife, The Lookout on Davaar Island provides a secluded and comfortable base from which to explore The Mull of Kintyre and this hidden gem of an island.

Set at the northern tip of Davaar Island, The Lookout is connected to the mainland by a causeway, revealed by the sea for 4-6 hours at low tide. On arrival and departure, visitors will met by the Island caretakers and ferried by Landrover across the causeway (leaving cars in the parking area at the main access point to the island). Once on the island, the mainland is just 20 minutes’ walk across the causeway, and Campbeltown, with good shops and restaurants, is a further 2 miles by car. Complimentary crossings to and from the mainland are offered for guests by arrangement with the caretakers.

The cottage is simply charming inside with a fully-equipped kitchen, a warming wood burner and a luxurious kingsize bed with 100% cotton bed linen. Small touches such as a complimentary decanter of local Campbeltown Whisky, binoculars and bird guides are supplied for guests as well as an art box, book collection and telescope in the upstairs sunroom. Dolphins, minke whales and basking sharks are frequently spotted off the shore as well as plentiful bird and wildlife. Shop, pub and restaurant 3½ miles.

About the local area

As you travel through Argyll, highland Scotland merges with the Scottish lowlands. In the north of the region is the bustling fishing port of Oban. Surrounded by the sweeping mountains of Lorn this is the ideal base from which to tour the Highlands to the north.

The Isle of Mull is only a short ferry trip away. Mull's capital, Tobermory, is instantly recognised by its famous brightly painted buildings. The island has a fascinating history being once home to the Chief of the Clan MacLean and site of the clan's ancient Duart Castle which has spectacular views from its battlements.

South along the coast are the unspoilt glens and bays of Mid-Argyll and Kintyre and the islands of Islay and Jura which are easily reached by ferry. Visit the whitwashed houses of Inveraray and the turreted Inveraray Castle, home to the Dukes of Argyll. Campbelltown in Kintyre was the scene of Viking repulsions at Saddell Abbey and has some lovely beaches nearby.

The captivating Isle of Bute lies at the heart of the Firth of Clyde, a place of tranquil relaxation with sheltered coves and sandy bays. Ideal for leisurely hiking and easy-going cycling on quiet back roads. Maybe take in the grandeur of Rothesay Castle or Mount Stuart - the House and gardens of the Marquess of Bute.
