When you walk into the lounge, panoramic windows ensure that you are not just looking at a view, but that you become part of it. Take a seat on the comfy couch and gaze at the ever-changing views over the water.

Keep an eye out for diving dolphins, whales working schools of fish, graciously gliding gannets and cray fisherman checking their pots. You may occasionally check that your book is still in your lap and your drink is still at hand. But you may completely forget that, too
