>No-one who has played the Machrie championship golf course on Islay is ever likely to forget it.

This 71-par course is one of the most challenging but beautiful courses anywhere in the world which is why golfers everywhere will groan with disappointment at the news, just announced, that the Machrie Hotel and Golf Links has gone into administration.

But, however bad the blow may be to golfers from around the world, the impact on the people of this Hebridean isle will be even greater.

With 16 rooms in the main hotel and 15 chalets, the Machrie Hotel is the biggest hotel on the island. It also is the only venue with the draw of a golf course – routinely named as one of the best 100 in the world – a draw strong enough to attract visitors to stay and play.
