“Keeps getting better”
Reviewed 30 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Return visit to Summer Cottage. House has everything you need for a very comfortable, relaxing stay. Wonderful location and spectacular views. On the Kintyre Way route, plenty of wildlife to see. A stones throw from a usually empty beach and right beside the golf course. Easy walk to local shop/tearoom and bus stop to Campbeltown. Donnie is a great host and nothing is too much trouble. Looking forward to our next visit. Highly recommended!

“Superb!!”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This is a superb place to stay, particularly if you are after some peace and quiet. It is in a stunning location, overlooking the bay and only about 20 feet from the sea, which you cannot take your eyes off! The cottage was very comfortable and cosy for the two of us, well supplied and the beds extremely comfortable.
Birdlife of all sorts (including diving Gannets), seals and otters abound and the beachcombing is excellent! The bay that this cottage looks out on is a lovely sandy stretch, as are other beaches around - great for mind clearing walks.
Last, but not least, Donnie, our host, is such a lovely guy - he is constantly concerned that his visitors have all that they need and even provided us with delicious soup because he had some left over!
I can HIGHLY recommend this venue - do go!

“A great place to be”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Summer cottage is in a stunning situation, so peaceful and relaxing. It's comfortable and cosy with everything you need. A real Shangri La !
Booked for three nights then added an extra one. Would have loved to stay longer and will definitely return.
As all have said Donnie is the perfect host. So welcoming and helpful. He goes out of his way to make your stay special.

“Blissfully peaceful”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed in the cottage was a very relaxing stay for 2 nights. Would have loved to stay longer. Donny is a fabulous host very relaxed and easy to deal with. Views amazing and right on the beach which felt like a private location. Liked the quirkiness of the attic bedroom and the views out the loung where amazing. Would highly recommend a stay here Great place for walking and just chilling out. Short drive to Campbeltown for supply when needed.
