Also from Machrihanish village you can book the Machrihanish Dunes 18 hole links course which you can see from the house. Only completed in recent years it is proving to be a challenging and popular course which has already won awards, in particular for it's unique care of the spectacular wildlife and wide flowers seen in this area.
