Review on Corsewall Lighthouse Hotel

Built onto the side of a working nineteenth-century lighthouse at the end of a single-track road, this unusual hotel affords superlative views of the Kintyre Peninsula, the Firth of Clyde and Ailsa Craig. The lighthouse itself is a Grade A-listed building set in 20 acres of grounds, and visitors are welcome to view the scene from its galleries.

The restaurant is a cosy room with a dark-blue lighthouse motif carpet, lace-topped tables, a blazing open fire and a flotilla of model ships on display. Menus change daily, but you might cast off with local Marrbury smoked duck breast with orange, honey and mustard dressing before baked fillet of Shetland salmon with Pernod and tarragon cream or roast loin of Galloway lamb with Cajun spices, couscous and raspberry vinaigrette. Lemon and mango cheesecake is a typical dessert. Wines are supplied by Whighams of Ayr.

    For a unique and 'edge of the world' experience, Corsewall Lighthouse Hotel must be hard to beat, both for a culinary or residential visit. The approach to the hotel holds a 'surprise' appearance of the lighthouse, the descent to the hotel creates a keen anticipation, and departure, a sense of regret. The food, it's presentation and delivery are magical. The ambience is embracing. The sunsets can be stunningly beautiful. The only drawback is that a short section of the drive can be a bit bumpy. After my fourth extended stay at the hotel, I will be back.
