One of autumn’s greatest pleasures is taking a breezy walk by the sea.
A big dose of salty, fresh air followed by a hearty dinner, perhaps with a drink or two, and then a great night’s sleep. It’s what autumn was made for.
Use today’s Big Deal to plot a course for The Anchorage Hotel and enjoy a relaxing stay in the picturesque seaside town of Troon.
Dating back to 1812, The Anchorage Hotel is the oldest licensed premises in Troon and blends excellent views of the Isle of Arran with traditional Scottish hospitality.
With a cosy bar, spacious sea-view rooms, a large garden area and staff who take pride in making your time at The Anchorage Hotel as enjoyable as possible, it is a winning combination.

The large spacious rooms maintain the traditional Scottish theme found throughout the hotel and each room is named after a malt whisky.
There are nineteen en-suite rooms with some having an excellent view of the Marina and the Isle of Arran. Each room has a direct dial telephone, tea and coffee facilities, colour television, hairdryer and use of ironing facilities.
Fresh, local produce
The hotel’s warm and welcoming bar restaurant is the perfect place to sample fresh, local produce. The menu changes regularly but typical dishes might be the pan-fried breast of chicken with black pudding and whisky cream or the haddock goujons with fries, salad and a tartare sauce.
If we do get some autumn sun, the large garden area is popular for dining and drinks.
See and do
Ayrshire is perfect for the keen golfer with twenty challenging courses in the area and six of them are on the doorstep in Troon.
