We managed to get the last room, a rather expensive one with a lovely view over the water, in one of the last hotels or B&Bs with anything available on a lovely summer weekend - yes, I KNOW we should have booked in advance, but we didn't! The hotel looks very smart superficially, but when we looked a little closer...

After eating here last year whilst on a family holiday to Point Sands I was keen to return. Certainly busier this year, it was good to see that the Putechan (poo-chi-kin) has been building a good reputation for itself. I ordered the burger which seemed to be handmade and which was very tasty. I ordered my 18month old son fish...

We recently enjoyed our first ever short break at this beautifully located hotel. The staff were really friendly and helpful. To hear the waves on the shore at night was so relaxing! On the whole the accommodation and fittings were excellent, but may I just make one or two points? We had accommodation with the wet room facility for disabled....

I stayed here recently with my partner after taking advantage of the 5pm offer for 2 nights B&B. What a find! The hotel has been beautifully restored, with a traditional feel retained throughout. I would absolutely recommend paying the extra for the principal rooms at the front of the hotel with the balconies, watching the sunset from there or indeed...

If you drive past this lovely Inn you're missing one of the loveliest eatery/sleepery/drinkeries on the West mainland of Scottish ....... You won't be disappointed. Warm welcome, modern comfortable rooms, views over the ocean to Islay and beyond not to mention the friendly accommodating staff. Never has black pudding eggs benedict before but will make sure I have them again.

Set by the side of the road on the western coast of Kintyre The Putechan overlooks a rocky beach and The Isles beyond. It offers comfortable accommodation with good size, modern furnished, rooms and huge beds. For a small extra premium the upper rooms have the advantage of better views of the breakers crashing over the rocks. The restaurant provides...

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
