A good getaway doesn’t have to be a long way away.
Book some West Coast heaven via the A77. And if taking the car seems a faff, the train from Glasgow takes about 40 minutes.

Fresh, local produce

‘Great food, friendly staff. Bedroom is dated however it was clean and comfortable just what you need. Beer garden was a nice surprise… The hotel and bar was much bigger than I expected… Please visit if you can. It was fantastic, hopefully we will be back soon!’
‘Great location, lovely food. We had a large room with a great view, the food and drink were really nice, as were the staff…’
‘Nice hotel. Stayed at The Anchorage Hotel for two nights. Third time we’ve stayed there. Hotel needs bit of T.L.C. but rooms are massive. Staff and food are excellent. Lovely lounge to have dinner in and bar is in the shape of the bow of a boat, very unusual. Breakfast at The Anchorage is lovely and you can help yourself to tea and coffee. Went on a voucher so was amazing value for money. Would definitely stay at The Anchorage again.’
