Fodor's Expert Review Piersland House Hotel

15 Craigend Rd., Troon, South Ayrshire, KA10 6HD, Scotland

Formerly the home of a whisky magnate, this late-Victorian mansion on the southern edge of town is now a country-house hotel. All the bedrooms in the half-timbered main house are furnished in traditional style, and many have romantic four-poster or canopy beds. Oak paneling and log fires in the restaurant provide a warm backdrop for Scottish cuisine, including such specialties as beef medallions in pickled walnut sauce. The hotel is within walking distance of the Royal Troon course and a half hour drive from Turnberry.
