The Lookout is a former wartime observation post located on the north tip of Davaar Island, near to the Lighthouse and overlooking the entrance to Campbeltown Loch. It has been converted to a cosy and comfortable, holiday cottage for 2. The accommodation includes an upstairs sitting room /observation room with views all round and a telescope. There is an adjoining sunny and sheltered and private roof terrace with stunning views across the loch and Kilbrannan sound. On the ground floor there is a double bedroom with en-suite shower room, a fully equipped galley type kitchen (with cooker, fridge etc and all modern conveniences) and a sitting room with wood burning stove. There is also electric heating and high speed wifi throughout. The access to the island is tidal and on arrival guests with their luggage are transported from the mainland in a 4wd vehicle and back to the mainland at the end of their holiday. The causeway to the mainland, where there is a car park, can be crossed on foot between tides. Safe access is possible for at least 2 hours before and after low tide so guests can enjoy a full day on the mainland between tides.
A wealth of wild-life abounds on the island. The Lookout is perfect for bird watching, and wales and dolphins can often be seen passing by. Peregrines can be seen nesting and hunting around the cliffs. There are otters and seals resident on and around the island and also a small flock of wild goats.
There is a cave painting of the Crucifixion which was painted in 1887 by local teacher Archibald MacKinnon. and has since been restored. This can be reached by a short walk round the shore which starts on a grassy path but the last part includes rocky beach with several small caves before the cave with the cave painting is reached.
