The estate was the property of the Dalmahoys of that Ilk until the early 18th century. The house was built in 1725 for George Dalrymple, a younger son of the Earl of Stair, and was designed by the architect William Adam (1689–1748). Dalmahoy was sold in 1750 to James Douglas, 14th Earl of Morton.

In 1787 an extension and a number of alteration were made to designs by Alexander Laing. Further alterations were made in the 1830s, involving William Burn, and in 1851 by Brown and Wardrop. In 1927 the house was leased and converted to a hotel, with golf courses being established in the grounds.

The present hotel was built in 1990, and comprises substantial extensions to the original building and the golf course/hotel complex played host to the second ever (and first in Europe) Solheim Cup in 1992. The hotel is now part of the Marriott chain, on a long term lease from John Charles Sholto Douglas, 21st Earl of Morton.

 

Dalmahoy is an option for those wishing the stay in a Douglas property during the Gathering.

If there is sufficient interest, a golf tournament will be held here.

For those not staying at Dalmahoy, there will be an opportunity to visit when attending the Reception and/or the Ceilidh.
