The little things


MACHRIHANISH, Scotland – Small victory No. 3 of the day. When we returned from our round at Machrihanish Dunes we found that breakfast had been delivered to our cottage. That meant even though it was past noon we could munch on the goods – yogurt, muffins, cereal – and pass on the ham and cheese sandwiches. Oh, it's the little things.

Seriously, though, this area is neat now. But in a couple years, when they're done renovating the 22-room hotel and adding more cottages, this place will be every bit as good as Bandon Dunes in Oregon.
It's off the beaten path, but well worth the effort.
