The house is a family house and has been in the family for nearly forty years. Gordon and Patricia spent over two years renovating and restoring the house to its present fine state.

Home from home
Fantastic family home. Two lovely porches immediately swallowed up all outdoor gear for 9 people. Lots of warm space inside for family to relax and play. Very very comfortable beds. Hundreds of books for my bookie family and a chess set at the window! Everything we needed in the spacious kitchen. All enjoyed.
Thank you for your response. So glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope you may come back again.
September weekend 2019
The property was luxurious; it lacked nothing! We had a fantastic time. The scenery is spectacular and it was the idea location from which to explore Kintyre.
This is the second time we have stayed at Rothmar East for our yearly golf holiday at Machrihanish. The accommodation and facilities are first class and has everything a large party of golfers or family would want. Hopefully we will be back again next year.
Many thanks for your very positive review, much appreciated. It's really great that you and many of our other guests come back again time after time. It's a paradise for golfers but also attracts groups for family holidays. The beach and the facilities in Machrihanish are among the best in Scotland. We look forward to welcoming you again next year.
Outstanding House with Great Views
Fantastic house with great views - golf course and beach to the front, rolling hills to the back. Very spacious, large modern kitchen and games room - great facilities all round. Short walk to the beach, golf course and clubhouse bar that serves great food. Fabulous Hotel Spa also very close by. Large garden and nice patio area. Would highly recommend and would not hesitate to book again.
Thank you for your review. We love this house and are glad that you and our other guests feel the same way - it's nice to share this piece of paradise and having guests keeps the house alive. We are so fortunate to have our unique situation with incredible views of the beach and hills to the rear. We're also creating a new wildflower garden to the rear of the property which will provide another space to enjoy the spectacular views of the rolling hills beyond.
Many of our guests have appreciated the facilities in our village within 2 minutes walk; golf club,hotel restaurant, gastro pub and spa. For golfers it's a Mecca. We hope you will come back another time.
Superb Villa in a stunning location! Immaculate and well equipped inside and out. Loved it!
So glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again in the future.
Fabulous house with spectacular viers
The house is very spacious with a great garden. Very well equipped for a family stay - our daughter loved running around and the two living areas meant toys could be kept out of the lounge. Great kitchen with everything you could need. All front facing rooms have amazing views to the golf course, beach and islands beyond. We walked to the beach and playpark every day and would recommend the Golf Club and Old Clubhouse for food and drinks. Serenity Spa at Ugadale Hotel is also fabulous - you hardly need to go to Campbeltown! Totally relaxed after our visit to Kintyre.
Many thanks for your feedback and so pleased you enjoyed your stay. The Old Clubhouse has gained a great reputation as a gastropub and The Ugadale Hotel itself is worth a visit for fine dining. The Serenity Spa has become very popular for treats!
I do hope you come back again in the future.
The house overlooks a three mile, unspoilt sandy beach which is 50 metres from the house or a minute's walk. It is one of the best surfing beaches in Scotland and is popular with surfers, windsurfers and kayaks. It is very likely that guests will see dolphins, seals and otters as well as numerous varieties of sea-birds. There are other beautiful beaches in the village within walking distance including The Gauldrons and The Pans.
