Encompassed by no less than six golf courses and frequent home of the Open Golf Championship, Troon is a small seaside town overlooking the Isle of Arran. There is an award winning beach and bustling harbour (home to Ayrshire’s fish market) along with Yacht Haven – one of the Clyde’s leading sailing centres where you can view a variety of impressive boats. The Isle of Arran is known as ‘Scotland In Miniature’ with its imposing peaks, tranquil lochs, stunning coastlines and outstanding castles.

 

For 2018, we are pleased to return to the very comfortable SOUTH BEACH HOTEL which is ideally situated in a tranquil position just a five minute walk from the town centre. Family owned and run, the South Beach is known for its welcoming atmosphere and features include a conservatory restaurant with fabulous sea views and a refurbished bar and lounge overlooking the garden. All of the very well furnished bedrooms have tv, telephone, hair dryer and hospitality tray. Please note there is no lift, however limited ground floor bedrooms are available on a request basis.
