About Afton Restaurant
Modern Scottish restaurant in Ayrshire countryside
Afton Restaurant is part of the four star Lochside House Hotel, originally a shooting lodge for the Marquis of Bute. Close to New Cumnock, the hotel is set within 20 acres of land and overlooks The Loch of the Lowes. With glass walls and a wraparound terrace, the restaurant’s design means that diners can enjoy the magnificent views of the surrounding Ayrshire countryside. Inside, the decor is sleek, contemporary and airy. Afton Restaurant is as popular with local residents and visitors to the area as it is with hotel guests.
