We're just back from a weekend at the newly opened Putechan Hotel and I can't sing it's praises highly enough. The hotel itself is gorgeous - striking the perfect balance between cosy, welcoming, fresh and modern. The staff coudln't have been more welcoming or helpful, the rooms were lovely (beds are soooo comfy), the food was outstanding (a good, well priced selection from pizza's to scallops to ham hough), the bar was inviting, and there was a games room with pool table etc. We had a tour of the building and saw a huge function suite which looks like it'd be excellent for a wedding. The place was spotless, albeit in it's opening weekend. There were a couple of large parties in but we slept peacfully with no disturbance.
Situated right on the water with it's own stretch of beach, the views were outstanding (there was a storm one day and beautiful sunshine/sunset the next and both were equally fab to watch). We'll definitely be back!!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Putechan Hotel is a former Duke of Argyll’s hunting lodge dating from 1872. It lies on the western edge of Kintyre facing the dramatic Atlantic Ocean with stunning views of the Isles of Islay, Jura and Gigha, together with incredible sunsets. It is surrounded by rugged grounds with an amazing pebble beach, strewn with giant rocks for our customers to enjoy. Take a walk along the beach or perhaps a BBQ while looking out for the dolphins and minke whales. The hotel, now under new ownership, has been extensively refurbished and extended, and can now offer a variety of bedrooms to suit different tastes and pockets; from the bridal suite with roll-top window bath looking out to Jura and Islay and balcony facing the ocean, our 1st floor premier rooms with balconies, ground floor doubles with sea views and a linked disabled room. We can also offer more budget accommodation in our rear facing rooms and ‘bunk rooms’. We also have a fully refurbished and extended Venue catering for a variety of events from weddings (up to 120 seated). Attached to the south wing is the sensational ‘Rock Room’ with one whole wall formed by a massive rock with French doors to the rear and front with stunning views over the ocean. The room seats around twenty and could be used for meetings, smaller intimate weddings, yoga/fitness work-outs, business meetings, or an exhibition hall for local artists. Tell us what event you want to run and we will make sure it is one to remember. The south-facing courtyard is a natural sun-trap and looks over onto the private beach. With practically no light pollution, and clever outdoor lighting systems the Putechan enjoys fantastic stargazing on a cloudless night. ... more less
