You can keep Cannes; Copacabana is too crowded and we don’t fancy the Caribbean. For a truly beautiful coastline, nothing can beat Scotland’s West Coast.
Enjoy the best Scotland has to offer with today’s Big Deal on a brilliant two night break at the family-run Putechan Hotel in Argyll.
Once the Duke of Argyll’s hunting lodge, the Putechan Hotel sits on the western edge of Kintyre. Facing the Atlantic, it has stunning views of Islay, Jura and Gigha, all seen at their best when lit by the sinking sun.
Surrounded by rugged grounds with an amazing, private, pebble beach, the hotel offers great vantage points for spotting passing dolphins and Minke whales as well as the local otter population.
Put simply, the Putechan Hotel is in a remote, romantic and staggeringly beautiful spot.
Available seven days a week, this tremendous offer is for two people to enjoy a relaxing, two night stay in a Master bedroom at The Putechan Hotel. A full Scottish or continental breakfast is included in the offer as is a two course dinner on the first night.
Master rooms are to the front of the hotel, on the ground floor. All ensuite, these West-facing rooms enjoy stunning views over the Atlantic.
Comfortable, warm and decorated in a contemporary style, all of the rooms can be set up as a double or twin and have TV with Freeview channels, tea/coffee making facilities and hair dryers.
Depending on availability, there may be the option to upgrade to a Principal room with private balcony for a supplement of £10 per room, per night.
Argyll’s natural larder
A full Scottish or continental breakfast is included in the offer. Guests can also look forward to a two course dinner at the hotel on the night they arrive.
The kitchen uses as much local produce as they can and the menu changes regularly. Most of the dishes are rooted in Scottish culinary traditions and the recipes are often tweaked a little to keep everything fresh and exciting.
See & do
We have mentioned the great wildlife spotting opportunities to be found around The Putechan Hotel and there is so much more to do. The famous Machrihanish Golf Club and the more recently developed Machrihanish Dunes are nearby while whisky lovers can make an enjoyable pilgrimage to the Springbank Distillery in nearby Campbeltown.
With practically no light pollution, and clever outdoor lighting systems the Putechan also enjoys fantastic stargazing on a cloudless night.
The skies on the west coast of Kintyre attained Dark Sky Discovery Site status (Milky Way class) in 2012.
Alternatively, just pick a whisky from the bar’s fine selection and watch the Atlantic surf crash onto the hotel’s beach.
The Putechan Hotel scores a fantastic 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor. This is what a recent guest had to say on the review site. We’ve edited it for length but not meaning:
‘Stunning… We found the hotel was fantastic. The driftwood furniture was beautiful and the theme had been carried out throughout the hotel. Our room was the premier en-suite and had a balcony overlooking beach. Stunning views. The food was excellent and the staff were very helpful and very friendly. Couldn’t fault it. Will definitely stay here again and would recommend it. Thank you.’
The Putechan Hotel has also been a hit with 5pm customers when we have run previous deals with the venue. You’ve told us that you loved the ‘great location’ and the hotel’s ‘lovely looks’ while other customers have enthused about the hotel’s proximity to Machrihanish Golf Club.
