So since my last visit in 2017, I decided to pop back into the Swan and get some food as it was again another lovely day.

The Food…

I was happy to see that basically, you can get practically anything! and I really mean that. The menu has a vast choice, so you will always find something you like.

Main Course

Chicken Burger & Chips £7.75

This was a nice burger and excellent value for money as there were two chicken burgers between the buns.

The chips were nice and many of them as you see, but I needed to add some salt (this is more a personal taste thing)

I have visited Troon many times, with my parents and with my girlfriend.

I really like it there as its a nice relaxing trip, and you have some shops and a really nice beach.

Today’s visit was to have a picnic on the beach, followed by a light dinner.

This was an amazing day for a picnic as it was clear sky’s, and a temperature of around a high of 17.

It was now 5ish and time to go and get some food.

The last few visits to Troon I had gone to a place called The Swan, the manager and staff were always very nice and the food was good but I hadn’t been in maybe a year so I thought lets go back.

The Food :

Chicken Mayo Panini £?

I forgot to take note of the cost but it was around the £7 area, as I was too busy looking about and taking photos.

When this arrived it was a massive portion.

The chicken mayo was really good, and very very tasty. I am not a salad person, but I did take some and what I had was nice.

This was a perfect dinner for me, as we had pigged out a little on the beach so a nice snack suited me.

Overall :

Overall my visit was just OK, the food was good but for me it didn’t feel like it did the last time. The atmosphere wasn’t just there, where as before there was something.

If you are ever in Troon and need a good meal, I do recommend here as the food is very tasty, value for money is excellent and the menu has many many options so you will find something you like.

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.

Afternoon Tea :

Location : The Marine Hotel

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.
