There is a wide range of restaurants and pubs in Machrihanish and Campbeltown, offering fine dining, relaxed dining, pub food and cafes. Our favourites are:
The Ugadale Hotel
Already named "Golf Hotel of the Year" by the Scottish Hotel Awards, The Ugadale Hotel is a newly renovated, VisitScotland four-star rated accommodation featuring 22 rooms and suites at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. Once regarded as the pinnacle of luxury accommodation in the West of Scotland, The hotel has been restored to its former glory and now serves as the centerpiece of The Village at Machrihanish Dunes.
The Old Clubhouse Pub
The Old Club House pub and restaurant is the original clubhouse of the famed Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club, nestled on an extreme outpost on the Mull of Kintyre. Converted in the 1970s to become a pub, The Old Club House has undergone a major facelift in recent years to make it one of the most attractively contemporary meeting places in this corner of Scotland.
The Ardshiel Hotel & Whisky Bar
This award-winning whisky bar in Campbeltown stocks over 700 whiskies, with the adjoining restaurant offering Scottish food made from Argyll’s finest ingredients. The Ardshiel can arrange whisky tastings and food pairings and is within walking distance of all three of Campbeltown’s working distilleries – Springbank, Glengyle and Glen Scotia. Awarded Whisky Bar of the Year in 2019.
The Royal Hotel - The Black Sheep Pub & Harbourview Grille
The Royal Hotel is also home to The Black Sheep Pub and the Harbourview Grille, which is sure to become recognised as one of the finest dining establishments in all of Kintyre. The Harbourview has an atmosphere of relaxed elegance where guests can enjoy perfectly seared steaks, skillfully prepared seafoods and everything in between along with an impressive selection of fine wines, single malts and draught beers.
Skipness Seafood Cabin
Open from May to September, The Skipness Seafood Cabin is a seasonal, family run venue that prepares and sells locally sourced, fresh seafood dishes. It also provides a variety of homemade cakes and scones. The Cabin is set in the idyllic village of Skipness, which makes up for its removed, some may say isolated, location with beautiful scenery, easy walks, beaches, castles and stunning views of the Isle of Arran.
The Muneroy Tearoom
Build in the late 40's in a distinctive art deco style, Muneroy, at Southend, was originally opened as a tearoom and indeed the original fireplace and domed ceilings can still be seen today. Owned and run by Ian and Frances Hill the tearoom has been open for the last 13 years and has firmly established itself as a great place to eat. Be it a light snack, home baking or a satisfying meal, the menu offers excellent choice to suit all tastes.
