House of Machrie


If you are looking for THE PERFECT Scottish lodge house for a Summer or Winter holiday, then you have just found it. Hurray! The views from the huge conservatory over Dougarie Estate farmland and down to the sea are absolutely stunning!!

(May 2019). Here's what they say about the place - The House of Machrie is a substantial Victorian country house set in beautiful surroundings with fabulous coastal views across the Kilbrannan Sound to the Mull of Kintyre. Built over one hundred years ago as the principal farmhouse on the island it encapsulates Scottish architecture through the ages with crow stepped roof gables and a circular tower, which houses the main staircase. It is surrounded by mature trees to the rear and overlooks its former kitchen garden and farmland. The house was extensively modernised and refurbished to a high standard in April 2019 and is now a modern sporting lodge accommodating 14 guests in 3 double rooms with en-suite bathrooms, 2 twin bedded rooms with en-suite shower rooms and 2 twin bedded rooms that share a bathroom. All twin bedded rooms can be configured as doubles if required. Features The house combines spacious and attractive bedrooms with lots of public space including an elegant drawing room, dining room, a family/TV/sitting room, a large fully fitted and equipped kitchen and a sea-facing conservatory. There is central heating throughout, with underfloor heating in the bathrooms, boot room, conservatory and kitchen and the house has fast wi-fi throughout. Outside there is a stone barn that has been converted into a games room and is a perfect space for a large party or for games on a wet day.
