16th hole and sea, Machrihanish Dunes – Scotland

Ever wanted to feel like Scottish laird?

Now, for $12,000 you can – for one week per year, for the rest of your life – at The Residences at Machrihanish Dunes.

The sea-side resort on western Scotland’s Kintyre Peninsula is offering those with a taster for whisky and sea air the opportunity to (partially) own a luxurious Scottish holiday home by the sea.

Cottage Kitchen

The homes are being offered as freehold shared ownership, which gives you a valid, heritable title that is registered land in Scotland. Meaning you can sell it or – like any good nobility would – pass it on to an heir at any time.

Cottage Inside

The pretty two-bedroom pads have natural stone interiors, hardwood floors, fireplaces, plenty of tartan, and homey kitchens and dining rooms where according to the website you can enjoy a chef-prepared meal. Owners also get a free membership at Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club and access to fine dining and a boutique spa. And because it’s Scotland, there is of course a local whisky distillery.
