Set in the dunes of Islay, Queen of the Hebrides, The Machrie Hotel & Golf Links enjoys an enviable location, nestled beside seven miles of pristine beach in the Inner Hebrides. The links course was originally designed in 1891 by Willie Campbell, and has now been fully modernised by D J Russell, the 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 and of course its positioning makes The Machrie the perfect spot from which to explore the Isles of Scotland’s west coast.
Opened in summer 2018, The Machrie has undergone an extensive refurbishment that has lovingly restored the original building and fused it with the striking architecture of the new areas. Whether on the ground or first floor, all the 47 beautifully designed rooms have unobstructed views of the island’s peat plains, the Mull of Oa or the green of our links and the Atlantic Ocean. 4 new lodges have also been added onto the links and offer more private accommodation only a minute’s walk from the main building. Some of the accommodation options have their own outdoor terraces and stunning views across the Links.
Overlooking the 18th green of the famous Links course and the ocean beyond, 18 is a stunning restaurant & bar.
Located on the first floor of the hotel, the impressive restaurant has a vaulted glass ceiling and an outdoor terrace offering panoramic south westerly views over the Links and down to Laggan Bay. You can gaze over the crystal blue sea from the terrace, the perfect place to sit for dinner or to enjoy a sunset aperitif.
For a proper movie night or to give a presentation before an audience, the 30-seat screening room offers the best technology and connectivity you can find on Islay. Bring or stream a film for a cinema experience with Full HD projection and thrilling surround sound.
