Also available to book are grand chateaux, quirky houseboats, lavish penthouse suites and fairy-tale towers. For that extra special touch choose a place with a bubbling hot tub, steamy sauna or mesmerising log fire.

We have received some lovely reviews for this property so we are disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay. The cottage is a listed building with Historic Scotland and it is over 100 years old so the layout may not suit everyone and it is probably quite different from a modern home but most people do appreciate the quirky character of the property. We aim to provide a welcoming ambience by ensuring it is very clean and warm on arrival with a generous welcome basket of island produce and lots of information about the amenities of the island. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you would need including a full size kitchen with oven, hob, fridge, microwave, dishwasher and plenty of crockery, pots and utensils. In the living area, there is a small leather sofa and an easy chair, as can be seen in the photos on the website. It is a small cottage and we do make a point of this in the description. However, there is a separate adjoining laundry room for exclusive use by Peacock guests with washing machine, clothes airer and tumble drier; and this can be used for storage of suitcases, bikes, golf equipment, etc. We will be changing the wardrobe this winter for one with extra drawer space so this will improve the storage for clothes. We have provided a separate garden area for Peacock guests overlooking the bay and the guests in the adjoining property are informed about this. It is necessary to circumnavigate the adjoining property to reach the garden. The gardens surround both properties are they are communal for everyone to enjoy. There are lawns and herbaceous borders which are very well stocked and the gardens are beautifully maintained by a team of gardeners. One point we particularly would like to mention is that we are available in the art gallery next to the property from 10am until 5pm everyday to help with any queries from our guests and it is our pleasure to provide assistance so that guests can fully enjoy their stay.
“Delightful cottage with amazing views” We were welcomed with a pack of essentials to tide us over until we could shop.
