    On my September 14 trip, it was 12.15 when I got off the ferry from the mainland. I was hungry - early start, only a yoghourt for breakfast, and an hour's sea air.

    The Douglas is across the street from the ferry terminal. Ideal.

    So it turned out. Quick service. Excellent food. Magnificent view out over the bay.

    It was all very familiar for me, as this is the place I worked for 2 months as a 19 year old student. It has all changed dramatically and has been delightfully refurbished. The reception area is in the same place. The bar (where I ate) used to be the "residents' lounge" - a very British concept. They have lots of outdoor seating.

    Good menu too - lamb burger plus tzatziki (and the compulsory "chips"). £15 (or thereby) all in.

    Favorite Dish: I only had one, so lamb burger it has to be.

    The food here is so impossibly delicious that you will want to lick your plate clean. The reason it is called ‘Arran on a Plate’ is due to the fact that the Master Chefs of Great Britain award their Chefs with plates highlighting their achievement. The restaurant is centred around Chef Richard Attkins. Richard began his training in Scotland and progressed into Michelin-starred establishments in France and the UK. Throughout his career he has specialised in sourcing Scottish season produce to create awesome meals. The menu changes and is varied, but its all fantastic. They even serve locally produced beers from the Arran Brewing Company. I also enjoyed THE best ever cheeses board in my life. They use lots of Arran ingredients and this really makes Arran on a Plate special.

    The restaurant itself has great views over Brodick Bay and has a trendy interior. They have a licensed bar open until midnight with a good selection of whiskey.

    The great thing about Arran on a Plate? You could come over on a ferry from the mainland for a scrumptious lunch or early dinner. In fact lunch here would really make a day out on Arran something special.

    * Lunch 2pm to 2.30pm
    * Dinner 5.30pm to 9.30pm
    * Cocktail bar open until Midnight

    Favorite Dish:
    I had the Scallops and Salmon starter with soy sauce, pickled ginger and wasabi paste to start with. And a whiskey of course. My main meal was Trout Almandine which was absolutely delicious. This went well with a Dark Isle of Arran Ale. Finally – the best Cheese Board I have ever eaten. This comprised several Arran and Scottish cheeses, oat cakes and an Isle of Arran Tomato Chutney. Complemented by an excellent glass of house red wine. Fabulous!

    Most people arrive on the island by way of the Calmac ferry from Ardrossan.

    Scotrail has a train service from Glasgow Central which connects with the ferries. Ardrossan is about 45 minutes from Glasgow by car.

    Island buses connect with the ferries right by the pier in Brodick.

    A day return on a passenger only ticket was £11.35, and you buy it in the terminal before boarding. Car tickets have to be pre-booked.

    The trip takes 55 minutes in normal weather conditions.

    The ships are modern and comfortable, with plenty catering and lounge facilities.

    The views of the island as you arrive and leave are just fabulous.
