Welcome to Another Place, The Machrie

Nestled in the dunes of a pristine seven-mile beach on the Hebridean island of Islay lies The Machrie – a modern, relaxed hotel with a world-renowned championship golf links, where the freshest Islay produce and warm Scottish welcome await.

As well as being named Scotland’s Golf Hotel of the Year 2023/24 at the Scottish Hotel Awards and listed in the UK’s Top 30 Hotels in the Condé Nast Traveller Reader’s Choice Awards 2022, The Machrie’s golf course is ranked 75th in the world in Golf World’s Top 100, and No 6 in Europe by Leading Courses.

In summer 2024, The Machrie joined Another Place Hotels to become the second hotel in its collection – the other is on Ullswater in The Lake District. Recent additions as part of this transition include a new outdoor relaxation and invigoration space in the wild garden – with a sauna, two large wood-fired hot tubs and cold plunge bath – as well as a new ’social golf’ putting green, a new informal restaurant in the Courtyard, and a new games room and croquet lawn.
With outstanding ocean views and so much to explore from our doorstep, begin your Islay adventure at Another Place, The Machrie.

“The Machrie is as close as Islay gets to Hebridean seventh heaven.”
