• The Champion Shell Inn

    A piece of Living History

    The Champion Shell Inn is one of Ayrshire’s oldest Inns.

    Dating back to the 1700's as an Inn & Hostelry, the building features a unique 'Clam Shell', some say it was a welcoming sign for weary travellers and pilgrims

    Owned by Proprietor Ronnie Wilson for many years, the Inn still retains all it's historical features and as a tribute to its namesake, The Champion Shell has a lectan shell proudly displayed at the entrance, above the doorway.
