Our Inspector's view

Piersland House is a delightful, historic hotel, once home to the Johnnie Walker whisky family, and set in its own grounds in the heart of Troon. Walkers Lounge, the elegant bar/restaurant with its carved fireplaces and dramatic beamed ceiling, is a comfortable, elegant setting for classic, traditional dining. Begin with something simple – warming vegetable soup, perhaps – before moving on to a main course of enticingly presented poached fillet of sole, served with a cheese and leek glaze. A crisp pastry tart of white chocolate and raspberry, accompanied by raspberry sorbet, makes for an indulgent finale.

About the area

Discover South Ayrshire

With a mixture of wide sandy beaches, cliffs and rocky coves, the Ayrshire coastline looks out towards the Isles of Arran and Bute and enjoys a fine, mild climate fanned by the warm currents of the Gulf stream. Like so many parts of Scotland, Ayrshire is excellent for walking and the area is renowned for its superb championship golf courses, as well as boasting a wealth of historic landmarks to seek out, including lots of castles and ancient strongholds.

A favoured holiday resort on the Clyde coast, with its 2.5 miles (4km) of seafront esplanade, spacious gardens and parks, Ayr itself is a Royal Burgh dating back to 1202. It is also home to Scotland’s premier race course, where the Scottish Grand National is run, and, more importantly to fans of Robert Burns, the literary heart of the Burns Heritage Trail. With its modern facilities, good shopping and wealth of family outdoor recreation, it makes an excellent centre for exploring Burns country.
