Scotland is renowned for its rolling hills, seaside communities, and world class golf courses, and Machrihanish Dunes offers the opportunity to purchase fractional ownership property in the heart of it all. Situated on the Kintyre Peninsula, The Village at Machrihanish Dunes has been developed by Southworth Development LLC, a privately held company based in Newton, Massachusetts.
Cottages at Machrihanish Dunes are two bedrooms, and each contains a zipped king bed that can be easily separated into two twin sized beds. All cottages also contain a pull-out couch suited for two additional guests meaning the cottages can accomodate a maximum of six guests per cottage at a time. All the cottages are fully furnished, including linens, bathroom amenities, plates, flatware, and cooking utensils, ensuring that guests need only bring personal belongings, toiletries, food, and drink. Cottage amenities include 600gsm Turkish robes and bath towels, flat screen plasma televisions in bedrooms as well as the living room, a gas fireplace, 400 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, satellite HD television service, complimentary Wi-Fi, in-room safes, cherry and granite kitchen features, and much more. Cottages also offer incredible views of Ireland, the Atlantic Ocean, Paps of Jura, and the Isle of Islay.
Ownership options vary from single week ownerships to 1/13th or 4 week ownerships, with occupancy designated at a predetermined time each year based on the length of occupancy purchased. Payment for a fraction is made in three parts, with an £1,000 deposit at the time of reservation and 20% due within two full weeks of receipt of the legal pack. The remaining balance is paid when the purchase is completed. Prices of the cottages are dependent on location, configuration, size, and the specific weeks included. Other fees include the Annual Estate Charge, which covers costs of operation, maintenance, and refurbishment, as well a housekeeping charge during times of occupancy to cover daily towel changes, trash removal, and cleaning at the end of occupancy. Daily cleaning and linen replacement are available for an additional fee.
Owners at The Cottages can also play golf at Machrihanish Dunes free of charge. Lifetime free golf belongs to a single owner per cottage or to their designated nominee and can be used during their occupancy weeks. Owners and their guests also receive preferred tee times and discounted greens fees.
The Village at Machrihanish Dunes features a wide range of amenities, including the Old Clubhouse Pub- a recently renovated pub with a wide range of both pub and fine dining options. Other amenities of the property include guest dining privileges at the Kintyre Club, complimentary shuttle service to the Campbeltown Airport and the Royal Hotel.
Like many fractional developments, Machrihanish Dunes is currently offering Discovery Packages to prospective owners. For £139, visitors can enjoy two nights in one of the seaside villas and can enjoy golf at Machrihanish Dunes as well as enjoy all of the other amenities of the resort.
