I recently spent three nights at The Puffin Place, and it has got to be the comfiest location I've stayed in during my travels in Scotland. It's definitely great value for your money: spacious but with a cozy feel, adorably decorated (and spotlessly clean!), perfectly situated, and with all the amenities you could want for either a short-term or long-term...

Cosy and comfortable cottage with all amenities catered for. Quite area, lovely walks and great view from cottage. Food in the Mayview second to none, plenty of food options in near by villages, with plenty of walks (Coastal walk). I only wish we had looked earlier and had gone for the week.

The kitchen/lounge was...
