Scotts: Hearty Fare Fit For Warriors

Scotts on the harbour at the Troon Yacht Haven

Straight from the boat to your plate

After our day fighting the driving rain and 30 mph winds, the warriors were in need of some hearty fare, so where better to pitch up than at one of Troon’s fine restaurants, Scotts.

Scotts is set in an idyllic spot right on the harbour at the Troon Yacht Haven, I am not sure if the view of Alisa Craig was a comfort or a reminder of my earlier battles, but along with the Isle of Arran it really is a beautiful spot. I must admit I would love to see it in the summer. It must be a beautiful sight watching the sunset as you contemplate the next course or bottle of wine.

You will enjoy both here, we really had a splendid meal and how can you not go with a fish dish straight from the sea, but they do have an extensive menu so if meat is your thing (I just love the rare Scotch steak or Venison) they will cook that to your preference.

I found Scotts quite a relaxing atmosphere and not like some of those stuffy restaurants, there is also a bar where you can relax and a massive open fire in the eating area, which just adds to the ambience of the place.

You can dine al fresco all year round if you choose, they have a heated terrace with retractable roof, but I am not sure today was the day for that! We watched an otter bobbing its way around the harbour, and I felt my soul and spirit reviving after the days play. Yes I think summers sitting here watching the sun go down with a glass of wine would be the perfect end to a day’s golf.

Inside Scotts, make sure you get a seat looking out onto the harbour
