The Lookout 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.
