Super location, special place with attentive relaxed service. Recommend booking in advance to get medium to large rooms if this is important to you. Pack your walking boots, camera and don't worry too about your waistline.

We drove from Skye where we had spent 3 nights and looked forward to once again returning to the wonderful Airds Hotel at Port Appin, Argyll. We first went there last Easter 2016 and were completely smitten with not only the area but the very special hotel which offers old world comfort, brilliant service and outstanding food. We were only...

All the pleasure and attention to be expected from an R & C experience plus the bonus of spectacular Scottish Highland scenery. Writing a prequel to my novel 'The Shout', based on my great grandfather's experience of being wrecked in an RNLI pulling lifeboat on The Doombar at Padstow Estuary, this was an inspirational maritime setting for being in the...

A very nice hotel that combines old world style and charm with modern amenities. We choose Airds to avail of some country pursuits, and the staff very kindly sorted out clay pigeon shooting, and some beginner-friendly trout fishing locally. The rooms were fine, but nothing too special (though they had lovely views). What was special, though was the food, which...
