The park's team loves making customers feel very special and at home. There are first-class facilities on site including free wifi, spotless washing facilities, free showers, a campers' room with a microwave, a fridge, a freezer and a kettle ideal for rustling up breakfast or dinner. You’ll also find a small selection of books and information on things to do in the local area. For your convenience, there's a shop selling snacks, groceries and other essentials, as well as a launderette. All facilities are accessible and the staff will do everything to accommodate any specific needs – just ask.
While visiting you are welcome to take a stroll to the Old Clubhouse bar and restaurant. Overlooking the beach, this family-friendly restaurant serves hearty pub favourites and Scottish cuisine, prepared using the finest local ingredients.
Golf enthusiasts staying there will be very happy to know that the place overlooks the historic Machrihanish Golf Club and is not far from Machrihanish Dunes golf club where park's guests can enjoy discounted green fees.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Home of the famous golf links and one of the most idyllic settings on the Kintyre peninsula, Machrihanish offers panoramic views and stunning sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean. Visit the seabird observatory for a chance to find out more about the native birdlife and some of the most exotic visitors to the peninsula.
You'll also be very close to a four-mile sandy beach with wonderful wildlife including seals, otters and dolphins, to name just a few. A beautiful white sand beach stretches four miles from Machrihanish to West Port and offers some of the best surf in Scotland. Take a stroll along the shore and get up close to the colonies of seals that call this home. Back in the village, relax with a drink or dine out in The Old Clubhouse bar and restaurant, which serves home favorites and Scottish classics, seven days a week. The newly revamped Ugadale Hotel also serves meals in the Kintyre Club and features a spa.
