Once regarded as the pinnacle of luxury accommodation in the west of Scotland, The Ugadale Hotel has been restored to its former glory and now serves as the centrepiece of The Village at Machrihanish Dunes.
In its heyday, The Ugadale Hotel regularly welcomed captains of industry and their families, who descended on Machrihanish for summer holidays with their steamer trunks and visions of relaxing times on the beach and golf links. Today, twenty-two stunning guest rooms and suites are finished to the highest standard and pamper guests in an atmosphere of casual elegance combined with modern amenities, historic charm, and unmatched natural beauty.
Imagine waking up in the morning to views of the sparkling Atlantic and the Hebridean islands of Islay and Jura out your window, enjoying a hearty Scottish breakfast, and then making your way to the first tee or enjoying a soothing spa treatment – or setting off on some other worthy adventure. From your home base at The Ugadale, all the beauty and rejuvenating activities that define the Kintyre peninsula will be but moments from your door.
And when it’s time to kick back, the hotel will please even the most discriminating visitor with its warm and inviting restaurant and pub in a private club setting, The Kintyre Restaurant + Bar. After your dinner and a wee dram to cap things off, you’ll be quite sure that life cannot get any better than this.
