Machrihanish Dunes

Scotland’s Award-Winning Seaside Resort.

Luxurious stone cottages, two lovingly restored historic hotels, the world’s most natural golf course, five restaurants and pubs, and a rejuvenating full-service spa—together they make up Scotland’s most heralded luxury resort. Machrihanish Dunes has been recognized more than 40 times for its excellence since it opened in 2009, not the least of which includes The Ugadale Hotel’s designation as “Best Hotel” for both 2015 and 2016, and our characteristically high (and always climbing) course rankings.

Why do people love this place so much? Is it the natural beauty? The challenge of the pure links golf course? The stunning rooms and fresh local fare served in our restaurants? It’s all of that—combined with the genuine friendliness of a staff who truly care about each and every guest.
