Golf courses near Machrie Hotel & Golf Links

Leave your worries behind The minute you step through the door at the hotel, you’ll be welcomed with friendliness and warmth by Ian Brown and his team. Whether you choose to stay in one of the 16 comfortable, pleasant rooms in the hotel itself, or one of the 15 well-equipped self-catering lodges, you’ll find yourself unwinding right away. Built 250 years ago as a farmhouse, the Machrie became a hotel at the turn of the century. With a choice of sea or mountain views from every room, the natural beauty of the Island is around you at every moment.

Among friends Many of our guests are here to play golf on our famous links course – a pleasure and a challenge which always lives up to expectation. We’re also the ideal base for individuals, couples or families here to make the most of the island’s many activities, including walking, fishing, biking and horse-riding. Whisky enthusiasts stay with us while they tour the distilleries, getting to know the home of Laphroaig, Bowmore and the five other single malts that come from Islay, as well as one from Jura. The Machrie often hosts meetings and events for companies and societies, including golfing groups. Our main function room can hold up to 150 people. Finally, we’ve got a reputation for putting on a good night, Scottish-style, including hosting wedding receptions and stag parties. And should the bride and groom want to escape the crowd, we can arrange an intimate meal for two.

Wining and dining, the Machrie way. Our restaurant is a favourite not only with our guests, but also with visitors to and residents of the island. It’s an unmissable part of any trip to Islay, and everyone tells us how much they’ve enjoyed eating there. Our reputation rests on a blend of fine local produce – including Islay beef and lamb, lobster, crab, scallops and prawns – and thoughtful preparation. The hotel’s cellar is a feature too. As well as Islay’s famous single malts, we have a selection of top-quality wines and spirits from around the world.

There’s more. The hotel’s shop is well-stocked with golfing equipment, handmade Islay crafts, outdoor kit and our Machrie range of clothing and gifts. For residents there is also free WIFI Internet available in public areas. Still indoors, you can also enjoy our full-size snooker table, carpet bowls and table tennis table. Get your hair cut at Heather’s, our in-house hairdressing salon, and let us arrange an aromatherapy massage to help you relax and make the most of your holiday, away from life’s pressures. After that, you could dig in with a single malt at one of our two bars, or take yourself off with the newspapers to sit by the fire in our drawing room.
