Property Description

In a superb, secluded location by the sea on a 160-acre private island, this unique holiday cottage, one of three, enjoys stunning views from windows all around. Set at the northern tip of Davaar Island, it is connected to the mainland by a causeway, revealed by the sea for 6 hours at low tide. On arrival and departure, visitors will be 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.In a superb, secluded location by the sea on a 160-acre private island, these three unique holiday cottages enjoy stunning views. Otter and Island Cottages are an adjoining pair of cosy lighthouse keepers’ cottages (the lighthouse is now automatic), while The Lookout is a former wartime lookout post situated 100 yards away from the lighthouse enclosure. This cottage has an extra sitting-room and sun terrace, formed from the original lookout, with superb long-distance views from windows all around. Otter and Island Cottages share a walled enclosure with the neighbouring caretaker, while The Lookout is set up on its own with outstanding views. Set at the northern tip of Davaar Island, they are connected to the mainland by a causeway, revealed by the sea for 6 hours at low tide. On arrival and departure, visitors will be 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.
The island’s moorland, hills and rocky shore are home to a wealth of wildlife – dolphins, basking sharks, otters, seals and sea birds are regular visitors, and even the occasional golden eagle may be seen. There is the famous cave painting depicting the crucifixion and further caves to explore. There is glorious walking and many picnic spots. Locally there is good fishing, riding, sailing and golf. Shops 3 miles (4 miles from The Lookout. Basic emergency provisions avail from caretaker).

  4. This holiday was fantastic. The fact that the island was a little remote only added to the charm and enjoyment, in fact i slept like a baby every night and felt totally refreshed every morning. and not once did i miss the traffic and sirens of the city. April 2007.
  5. Location sublime and just what I needed - absolute peace and quiet, stunning views, and although the weather was not brilliant, the house was cozy and I was comfortable. Oct 2006.
