A Kilwinning-born businessman is celebrating scooping Entrepreneur of the Year at the Scottish Bar and Pub Awards 2017.

The Chairman of hospitality group Buzzworks Holdings, Colin Blair, received the award last week during a glitzy bash in the Glasgow Hilton Hotel.

Colin and brother Kenny Blair, both originally from Kilwinning, have built their hugely successful Buzzworks brand and now own bars and restaurants in Kilwinning, Troon, Prestwick, Kilmarnock, Largs, Stewarton and Bridge of Weir as well as running their own hospitality school for staff training.

David Wither from Flow Hospitality Training and Montpeliers presented Colin with the prestigious award on the night.
