Season: autumn

Machrihanish and its beach are located on the western side of the Kintyre peninsula.  With some of the best surfing in the UK, the beach is long and sandy, backed by dunes and Machrihanish Golf Club.  Perfect for a walk or run, the glorious isolation is tempered by a friendly, up-market feel to the village.  Here you can eat well, sleep well, enjoy the evening and the sunsets, then do it all again the following day.  Highly recommended.
