My Visit to Troon (Scotland)

Visit Date : Saturday 25th March 2017

Location : Troon Beach & Marine Troon Hotel

Today I went to Troon with my parents and girlfriend, and the weather was looking nice so it was going to be a very nice day.

I had heard that Troon were holding a street market today, so we thought lets take a look while we are down as we had booked Afternoon Tea at the Marine Troon Hotel.

The Market :

Before going I didn’t really hear much about it, or what stalls were going to be there.

We arrived about a few hours after it started (starting time 10am & arrived 1pm), and I counted about maybe 10 stalls. Most of the stalls didn’t have much left, and the stalls were just ok you had some fish, soup, soaps, plants and sweets stalls. It was a good selection, but I just expected more.

What I did like was the atmosphere, there was a lot of people and the weather was good and the place had great atmosphere. Everyone was enjoying themselves, the children were enjoying the sun and eating ice cream cones it was a nice day.

The Beach :

For me out of the places I have visited (so far) this has the nicest and cleanest beach. Standing on the beach you have a wonderful view (if its a nice day) of the Isle of Arran.

As you can see from my photos, today was a really nice day. The sun was out, the view was amazing and everyone on the beach was having a nice time.

I have never been inside The Marine Hotel, I have only passed it when heading to Troon beach.

From what I saw from inside its very nicely decorated.

We were seated and asked who was on Tea or Coffee, and brought a glass of Prosecco each.

The atmosphere today was very nice and very relaxing.

The afternoon tea was presented nice, and had a good selection. Everything was nice and fresh, and as always you can’t beat a scone cream and jam.

Overall my day visit to Troon, was really nice and relaxing and I look forward to returning on another nice day…maybe even for a picnic on the beach.

Glasgow Rum Club : Coming Soon

RUM CLUB

Hey,

I am helping promote the return of the Glasgow monthly Rum Club.

If you didn’t know Glasgow had one ,there was a regular Rum Club all of 2016. It was held at the now closed Sugar Dumplin, so now we have a new location.

The date of these events are still TBC, but we are thinking on a Tuesday evening and either the last Tuesday of the month or the 1st Tuesday.

We have a fantastic and passionate host, who will teach you about different rums and give you a good laugh at the same time.

The Club:

Location : TBC (Trongate Area)
Time :  TBC

  • The cost is £10 on arrival, so you don’t need to worry about loosing any money…just pay at the door.
  • Learn how rum is made
  • You will taste and learn each month, a different selection of rums and the history.
  • Food to nibble on while you taste and learn.

The events last year had a good following, and everyone that attended loved the tasting, met new people and most importantly had a laugh and an enjoyable time.

Sound good? then keep watching my tweets, posts etc

Club Sock : The Last Sock

This months delivery is my very last from Club Sock, as I opted for the three month subscription.

As you have read in the last posts, I have been 50/50 with my subscription socks.

The first were ok, the second were pink and not a colour I would normally wear so I was hoping that they saved the best for last.

I opened the package…

My first thought was these are ok looking, again not a design I would normally select but hey its good to try something different sometimes.

Just like the previous socks, the material is very very good quality. The design is ok, I am sure someone reading this will like it when others won’t so its all down to personal taste.

These also felt nice to wear, very comfy and were a perfect size for me. When wearing these with shoes they felt good, and kept my feet nice and warm.

Overall this idea is a funky one, as more and more items are being packaged as a subscription box clothes, aftershaves etc

I probably won’t continue as the styles are not to my taste, but if you have liked what you have seen why not try Club Sock out?  Just because it wasn’t for me, doesn’t mean its not something for you so check them out.
