We went for a an early evening meal. The Food was lovely, the view amazing and the staff friendly and attentive. We spent a pleasant few hours here watching the world go buy just relaxing. The little ferry across to the island of Lismore runs from just outside the Pierhouse and runs every 30 mins or so. Nice for walkers....

An amazing destination with a group of friends, 5 couples. Pier House was an excellent base from which to explore the area. We were made to feel most welcomed at the hotel. The staff could not do enough for us. Nicky (the owner) was friendly and attentive, Nick being away on business. The sea food is exceptional. Lobster, langoustines etc....

Just returned from two nights here. A return visit, this time without our two dogs, who stayed at home with our daughter. We had a 5pm voucher, but upgraded our room, which was beautiful. Wonderful views across to Lismore Island. Room was first class. Walks around the area so scenic and weather was good. Food was delicious. First night we...

My husband and I stayed at this lovely hotel overnight on our way up to Ullapool and what a treat it was. We arrived to a warm Scottish welcome and shown to our comfortable bedroom by the same friendly lady. We freshened up and then went down to dinner, which I had booked. The restaurant is beautiful overlooking Loch Linnhee....

Had a lovely 1 night stay here. Took advantage of the bikes and went on the little ferry to Lismore. Cycled here for an hour and went to Port Ramsay which is an idyllic location with stunning views. It felt so peaceful and calm. Loved cycling about here. Caught the ferry back to The Pierhouse. (Ferries are every hour) Had...

Chose this place for a special birthday. So nicely tucked away. Weather awful! But totally used to west of Scotland's fickle climate. Shame there are so many cars at this end point though. Room very good, staff very good, breakfast very good. But the main reason for coming was for the seafood and I have to say it was a...

Thank you for your review although I am very sorry you did not enjoy your dinner. I feel you have been overly harsh on your criticism of the presentation of our Monkfish dish and the seafood platter comes with garlic mayonnaise. If this was absent for some reason then I apologise. Regarding the mussels, this is one of our signature...

After a fantastic dinner of fresh seafood and good wine, we got chatting to a great couple who are regulars at The Pierhouse. They advised us not to let others in on this great secret.....Sorry guys.. The Pierhouse is a slice of heaven served up in a slice of heaven. Port Appin is a stunningly beautiful (be warned - very...
