Head to one of Scotland’s most scenic spots for a three night stay on a stunning links golf course. Tucked away in the dunes of Islay, The Machrie hotel overlooks seven miles of pristine beach and its very own golf course. With our private charters to get you there, this remote island becomes easily accessible. And with the hotel only a stone’s throw from Islay’s finest distilleries, your trip will be topped off sampling a dram (or three) of some of the finest whiskies in the region.

  • 3 night hotel stay at The Machrie
  • Full Scottish breakfast each morning
  • Two rounds of golf (one per person) on the 18-hole links course

Designed in 1891 by Willie Campbell, the course was recently modernised by former European Ryder Cup Vice Captain and PGA tour player D J Russell, and offers an ever-changing challenge to golfers of all levels.

Head straight to the 18-hole Machrie Links, or warm up and get your eye in on the six-hole, par three Wee Course. There’s also a putting course and practise areas to work on your short game before you take on the main course.

After a full day of golf, soothe aching muscles with a 50-minute treatment at PureGray Spa and a visit to the sauna, or hit the gym for a calming cool down.

Whisky galore

Pick your two favourite Islay distilleries, and enjoy a full-day whisky-tasting tour with your own private guide. If time allows, you can also visit up to four more distilleries for photos, shopping and a wee dram or two.
