The Village at Machrihanish Dunes is located on the stunning southwest coast of the Mull of Kintyre in Scotland, surrounded by natural beauty on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. The area has a true golfing heritage as home to The Machrihanish Golf Club, opened in 1876 with a course designed by the internationally-renowned Old Tom Morris. Many regard its opening hole as one of the greatest in golf and the first tee lies across the road from the resort.
