ORIGINAL STORY

A beautiful Scottish golf destination was in for a devastating scene Wednesday.

The clubhouse at Machrihanish Golf Club caught fire Wednesday, with local fire crews getting to the scene around lunchtime.

No casualties were reported, thankfully, and local police confirmed the incident.

But the fire has appeared to gain back its strength this evening:

It’s sad to see, and we are hopeful everyone is OK.

Machrihanish was founded in 1876 and is considered one of Scotland’s gems. Hopefully, not too much is lost here. We’ll post updates to this story when we get them.
