Just had a brlliant weekend.
It was my wife’s birthday, and I’d booked a meal and a hotel in Largs for her.
On the way there we stopped off in Ayr for a wander and some lunch, and then headed to Loch Doon castle (on the shores of Loch Doon), where we met Bob, who played the clarinet for Karen and recited some poetry.
Bob and his friends where doing a spot of wild camping and have been working the festival circuit. It was a fantastic surprise. He was a genuinely nice guy and Karen loved being serenaded.
Dinner in Largs was really nice. Tinto Tapas does great food, but like all tapas places in Scotland, missed the fact that tapas should be small cheap plates, not small expensive plates. £4 – £5 a plate is pretty standard for tapas here, and it’s not cheap when you consider the size of plate you get for that.
Tinto do 3 for £10 as long as you’re there before 7.00pm, which we were, so it worked out great value.
The hotel – Wood House Hotel – was really nice. Seriously comfy bed, and a really nice breakfast the next day.
Wee bit of yoga on Ayr beach.
