This baronial country mansion stands in 1,000 acres of softly rolling parkland with views toward Edinburgh Castle. M'Laird, m'Lady, your Scottish experience starts here.

Once the country residence of a Scottish lord, Dalmahoy has come a long way since 1725 – today a luxury 4-star hotel and golf resort that seamlessly blends its baronial tradition with contemporary creature comforts and two splendid 18-hole courses, both designed by the legendary James Braid. Inside, the hotel’s elegant James Braid bar celebrates Scotland’s golfing hero.

As you enter the Dalmahoy Hotel and Country Club, you’ll notice its period detailing and traditional décor – tartan wingbacks, Chesterfields, wood panelling and warm lighting make for a rich, timeless sense of luxury.

Once inside, you can enjoy Scottish fine dining in The Pentland, or a small plate in The Brasserie, its bistro-style sister. A wee after-dinner dram in the cocktail and whisky bar is custom before retiring to your room – free high-speed Wi-Fi and Hypnos beds feature as standard. And there’s 24-hour room service should you get peckish. (Good to know.)

Nestled at the foot of the Pentland Hills, Dalmahoy enjoys peace and a prime position – close to the M8 and the airport, with Edinburgh city centre just 7 miles away. Some of Scotland’s finest attractions are at its doorstep – the medieval Rosslyn Chapel; Livingston, the country’s largest designer outlet; and Deep Sea World, its national aquarium.

When you’re not perfecting your swing on the driving range, sightseeing, or hitting the shops, you may want to take a lap of the pool, workout, or be pampered in the Beauty Essentials salon.

Golf Courses

Dalmahoy Golf Club

Host to major amateur and professional tournaments over the years, including the Solheim Cup and the Charles Church Seniors PGA Championship of Scotland, Dalmahoy is widely considered one of the country’s great golfing destinations.

Set at the foot of the Pentland Hills, Dalmahoy Hotel’s 1,000-acre country estate lends itself to stunning, uninterrupted woodland views and superb golfing facilities, including a 12-bay floodlit driving range and a 9-hole putting green.

James Braid – one of the leading golfers of his generation; he won the prestigious Open Championship an impressive five times – designed both of Dalmahoy’s 18-hole courses – East and West. With undulating greens and bunkers, they have been designed to offer different challenges for the keen golfer and make for an enjoyable golf break just outside of Edinburgh.

Dalmahoy Golf Club

The East Course

Designed and built by James Braid in 1927, the East course has since been extended and redeveloped to test even the best of players. The 18-hole course’s long sweeping fairways and generous greens, protected by strategic bunkers, offer a championship-standard golfing experience. Long par 4 holes provide a real challenge and the signature 18th hole has the green set in front of the baronial country mansion with a testing approach over a wide ravine.

  • 18 holes
  • Parkland course
  • 7,475 yards
  • Par 72

The East Course

The West Course

The shorter West course offers a very different game to its sister course. With tighter fairways and smaller greens, more accuracy is required from the tee. The finishing holes cross the Gogar Burn – a tributary of the River Almond – meandering through the fairway.
