Stayed here mid July 2011. Accommodation is fitted out to a very high standard and is a very comfortable place to stay. Plasmas in the living room and both bedrooms. Two things the cottages lack, a washing machine and an oven. If you were to buy a share in these, I would have thought these would be important if you were staying for a week.
Staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast is plentiful and of good quality. Ate in the old clubhouse at lunchtime, good quality pub food, defiantly recommend.
The Machrihanish Dunes course is about 7.5 miles from the cottages. Some excellent holes but lots of blind shots! Enjoyed it a lot and hope the greens mature a bit in the coming years (only 2 years old!) There are also restrictions on what they can do with the course due to environmentalists, so as a result the paths are not well defined and very rough. Course is a tough walk due to all the hills. In a couple of years this will be a very good links.
Also played Machrihanish, good course in excellent condition. Plays a lot easier than Machrihanish Dunes.
Great place to visit and excellent accommodation.
