Spa & Leisure

One doesn’t go to Argyll to spend time in the gym (although there is one if you are so inclined), this is a place for getting your exercise courtesy of the great outdoors with bracing walks to the caves of Davaar Island, along the beaches, to the Mull of Kintyre or the mountains of Bein Ghuilean, and returning to the cosy comforts of luxury accommodation, that The Ugadale Hotel exemplifies.

Adding that extra dimension to the luxury aspect of the venue is the Serenity Spa, where it is all about the treatments and using Decléor products, offers guests a range of the brand’s most popular treatments including facials, top-to-toe massages (important after all that walking), and finishing touches as well.

Hotel & Accommodation

Providing the centrepiece of the village at Machrihanish Dunes, The Ugadale Hotel has a long history of hospitality which it retains via the traditional furnishings across 22 rooms and suites that feature walnut wood and antique brass trimmings as well as quintessentially Scottish accents throughout. The majority of rooms also enjoy those all-pervasive views of the Atlantic and Hebridean islands of Islay and Jura.

As we say, this is a place that’s all about sensory experience and as a result there are dining options to showcase all aspects of Scottish fare, from the pub-style Kintyre Club to The Old Clubhouse overlooking the 1st tee of the Machrihanish golf course. There is also the Harbourview Grille – part of the hotel’s village-wide family, on the Campbeltown Harbour; the nearby Black Sheep Pub and The Golf House – the mainstay of today’s golfing visitors.
