Luxury Hotel and Golf on Islay
The Machrie Hotel and Golf Links

Set in the dunes of Islay, Queen of the Hebrides, The Machrie Hotel and Golf Links enjoys an enviable location, nestled beside seven miles of pristine beach in the Inner Hebrides.

Opened in late Summer 2018 after a complete renovation and expansion, The Machrie Hotel features 47 beautifully designed rooms, suites and lodges, some with their own outdoor terraces and with stunning views across our highly rated Golf Links.

The hotel offers guests the perfect place to meet and relax including, 18, our impressive restaurant with stunning views, PureGray, our spa and of course our award winning Championship Golf Links rated one of the top twenty golf courses in Scotland by Golf Digest.

To protect the health and wellbeing of our team and our Islay community we have taken the sad decision to close the Machrie until early in the New Year.

Although our whole team have worked hard to take the additional measures necessary to protect our guests, we reached this difficult decision so that we could play our part in stopping the further spread of Covid-19 in Scotland. The championship Machrie Golf links will remain open but regretfully only to members of the Islay Golf Club.

We would like to thank all our guests who have visited and supported us this year and our whole team are looking forwarding to giving everyone a true Machrie welcome next year. In the meantime, we will be posting regular updates and offers on our website and on social media. If you have any queries about reservations, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01496 302310 or email [email protected]

With every warm wish for a safe and happy holiday season

Golf at The Machrie

Our Links course was originally designed in 1891 by Willie Campbell, and has now been fully modernised by D J Russell, former European Ryder Cup Vice Captain and PGA tour player.

The dramatic setting of Laggan Bay has few equals and the ever changing nature of the challenge offered by this acclaimed layout make the Machrie one to play.

The scenery, the wildlife, the coastline, one of the finest Links courses in the world, coupled with the people, makes The Machrie the perfect spot from which to explore Scotland’s west coast.

Exploring Islay

As well as enjoying a round of golf, Islay is well known for the smoky malts distilled on the island. Make sure you find time during your stay to visit one or two of the nine distilleries and enjoy a wee dram to see for yourself the characteristics of the world-famous Islay whiskies.

Close to the Oa Peninsula and Nature Reserve, The Machrie is well located for exploring all the local culture, crafts and heritage of Islay.
