Glenapp Castle won the Excellence in customer service award

Ballantrae is once again punching above its weight, winning two prestigious awards in one evening.

The village recently won not one but two prestigious awards at the Ayrshire Chamber Business Awards Dinner held at Seamill Hydro.

Ballantrae’s Festival of Food and Drink won the Ayrshire Chamber Business Food and Drink Award 2016 and five star hotel Glenapp Castle won the Ayrshire Chamber Business Award for Excellence in Customer Service.

Councillor Alec Oattes said: “I am delighted that this local festival has been recognised by the award, it is well deserved recognition of the hard work put in by the local Development Group.

“I would also like to congratulate Glenapp Castle Hotel on their award, which is equally well deserved, this Hotel is a first class asset to the Carrick area.”

These two awards are helping to raise the profile of the village as a quality food and drink destination.

The 2017 Ballantrae Festival of Food and Drink will take place on Sunday 11th June 2017.

Ballantrae looks forward to seeing you there!
