The Airds Hotel, Port Appin, Appin, Argyll, PA38 4DF

    Set amongst the most stunning scenery in the Scottish Highlands, on the shore of Loch Linnhe with the Movern mountains behind. The restaurant has an international reputation and takes advantage of the abundance of local produce available

    The Airds Hotel is set amongst  the most stunning scenery in the little hamlet of Port Appin on the shores of Loch Linnhe. The Airds is a four star luxury hotel in the romantic setting of Scotland's west coast where personal service and a gourmet dining experience are the very essence of all that is great about a visit to this exclusive retreat.  Whether you come for the beautiful views, the fine dining restaurant or for pampering in understated luxury there is a good reason to come and stay.

    The atmosphere is one of relaxed elegance where friendly staff are attentive and efficient, yet not too fomral.  The 8 bedrooms and 3 suites are all uniquely designed with beautiful fabrics and furnishings whilst we also offer a luxury 2 bedroom self catering cottage for those who would like a little more independence.

    The restaurant has held 3 rosettes for over 20 years and was one of the first in Scotland to be awarded a gold star with Visit Scotland and conveys the same understated elegance whilst the cuisine is overseen by Head Chef, who ensures that the finest locally sourced ingredients are used. Seafood is in abundance on the menu taking advantage of the local source of seafood available.

    Spend your days exploring the nearby islands of Lismore and Mull, the dramatic landscape of Glencoe, or the bustling town of Oban and it's distillery.  Alternatively you may wish to hire a bike or simply take one of the beautiful walks from right outside the hotel's door and then return for a gentle massage or aromatherapy session in the comfort of your room.
