I am often asked for dining suggestions from groups before they travel to the West coast of Scotland. Here is my personal number one suggestion for anybody travelling or thinking of going to the Ayrshire Coast.
Wildings Hotel & Restaurant is a fantastic place to eat and is no more than a 5 minute drive (1mile) from the magnificent Turnberry Resort, home of the famous Ailsa Course. Situated in the small harbour village of Maidens, this is a well run family business and is rumoured to be one of Tom Watson’s favourite haunts when the Open comes to town.
The menu has a strong French influence and sources some of the areas finest produce; whether this is from the local countryside or the ever-present sea. In my opinion, it’s well worth a visit if you’re a seafood lover like myself or if you just fancy a decent steak.
My friendly advice to all is to book in advance of your trip in order to avoid disappointment!
