About the Hotel

Located in Port Appin, a picturesque hamlet in Argyll, the Airds Hotel is a family-owned, boutique hotel. The gardens provide access to Loch Linnhe and breath-taking views of the Morvern mountains. A short boat trip from the pier takes you to the island of Lismore, the start of the Inner Hebrides, whilst Glencoe National Nature Reserve is only a 30-minute drive from the hotel.


The eight guest rooms and three luxury suites are unique, each with a warm and inviting style of its own with numerous thoughtful touches throughout. For guests craving more independence, there is also the option of the two-bedroomed luxury Cottage situated in its own garden in the hotel grounds, which is let on a self-catering basis on a weekly basis, Saturday to Saturday.


The 3 AA Rosette loch-view restaurant offers a candlelit five-course à la carte or a seven-course tasting menu, along with a fixed price and à la carte lunch menu, and notable wine list. Dishes include the finest game and the freshest shellfish, all reflecting Argyll and Scotland’s wealth of ingredients.
