Spent a delightful Spring week on Davaar Island in the Lookout Cottage. Beautiful location. The Lookout is a World War II lookout station that has been thoughtfully converted into excellent cosy accommodation.
As the name suggests, the views are breathtaking. Peace & quiet, and wake up to goats grazing outside the window. Great variety of bird life. Otters leaving their breakfast of sea urchins on the slip. Fishing boats going in & out of Campbeltown Loch.
I had been looking forward to a few rainy days where I could catch up on my reading in comfort. Instead, the weather was glorious for the entire period, with views across the Firth of Clyde to Ayrshire & beyond; can't have everything!
