The Ugadale Hotel Grand Re-Opening Celebration [02:39]
Once regarded as the pinnacle of luxury accommodation in the west of Scotland, The Ugadale Hotel has been restored to its former glory and now serves as the centerpiece of The Village at Machrihanish Dunes.

Today, twenty-two stunning guest rooms and suites are finished to the highest standard overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the famed first tee of The Machrihanish Golf Club.

The Kintyre Way, photo highlights of the 87 mile walk using Lumix TZ10 and LX3 [14:15]

Well waymarked by bright, light blue marker posts bearing the logo of mountains with reflections they show, not only the way of the route but also the distance covered. This is true until after Largiebaan where the distance markers have not been attached (yet). Parking the car in Tarbert, taking coffee before starting the days trek to Loch Fraioch for the first night wild camp by the loch shore. Waking to a spectacular sunrise we then headed west to Point sands passing through Clachan and Corriechrevie. After a night on the campsite the days trek took us over Deucheran Hill (329 mtr) and through the new wind farm and finally dropping into Carradale after witnessing spectacular views of the isle of Arran just a few miles over the Firth of Clyde. Wild camping here before walking through Torrisdale, Saddell and then heading over the hills again towards Meall Buidhe at 374 mtr. Wild camping again by the shore of Loch Tussa. The next morning saw our descent into the main town of the peninsula Campbeltown with a brief excursion around the heritage museum before departing up the coast to Machrihanish and the very welcoming caravan park there. Having an evening meal at the new Golf Club and a good rest saw us embark on the hardest, and longest section, over the southern headland and along the cliffs at largiebaan ...
