Balkissock Lodge B&B

4.8 (13 reviews)
Balkissock Lodge, Ballantrae, Girvan, South Ayrshire, KA26 0LP
A very warm welcome awaits you at this peaceful countryside retreat, 3 miles from the coastal village of Ballantrae and 25 mins from the P&O and Stena Line ferry ports at Cairnryan with daily sailings to Larne and Belfast in Northern Ireland.

There are two beautiful ground floor rooms; a double ensuite and a twin ensuite (both with showers). There is also a guest lounge to relax in at the end of a busy day which is also used for breakfast and evening meals. Phone reception is limited in the countryside but there's free wifi (which sadly is very slow) and a bookcase full of novels and local interest books plus packs of cards and board games to keep yourself entertained.

Breakfast is a feast of local and home made produce. Enjoy cereal, yoghurt, fresh fruit and juice whilst your breakfast is cooked to order. Choose a Full Scottish or a lighter option such as Scottish smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on toasted home made bread or the very popular blueberry pancakes.
