Dunaverty Golf Club: although the fabulous championship courses of Machrihanish and "Mach Dunes" are the main target for golfers travelling to the southern end of the Mull of Kintyre, Dunaverty is also well worth a visit. A further 20-minute drive south from Campbeltown or Machrihanish, the course sits directly alongside the Mull's southern coast, giving views onto Sanda Island and Ailsa Craig (of Turnberry "fame"). Further details, course description and images of this wonderfully scenic gem to follow soon.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, day tickets, etc. [Last updated: 2020].
Dunaverty is located alongside Dunaverty Rock and the ruins of Dunaverty Castle, which once sheltered Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland and the most famous warrior of his generation. The ruin is most famous for the conflict between warring Clans in 1647 which culminated in the surrender and subsequent massacre of the 300-strong Royalist garrison by the besieging Covenanters (presbyterians).

The Ugadale Cottages were joined in 2012 by the completely refurbished Ugadale Hotel. Both cottages and hotel are located across from the first tee of the renowned Machrihanish Golf Club and adjacent to the Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club. Each cottage has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and lounge. The seven cottages are luxuriously appointed with all the amenities one would expect to find in world-class accommodation. The Ugadale Hotel, with 22 guest rooms, has been restored to its former glory and now serves as the centerpiece of The Village at Machrihanish Dunes.
