Wonderful food. Beautiful atmosphere. Romantic throughout. A real sense of class in the cooking, with interesting ideas and taste combinations that are a joy.

Went to The Airds and pre-booked in advance. Went for the taster with wine flight. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and treated accordingly. Amazing food and service. Will never forget the hospitality. Thank you for such a lovely experience....More

A Romantic Candlelit Restaurant serving locally sourced food using the best ingredients. Specialising in local seafood, the restaurant has held 3 rosettes for over 20 years and is one of the longest serving restaurants to be featured in the Good Food Guide, with a current rating of 6. Stunning views front the restaurant, of Loch Linnhe and the Morvern mountains and amazing sunsets can be seen, especially during the summer months. In the Spring and Summer it is also possible to enjoy morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea sitting in the garden, again with spectacular views. The hotel is open for morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Coffee, lunch and tea are all available in the lounges, bar area, conservatory or in the garden. Dinner may be enjoyed either in the candlelit restaurant or in the conservatory with the ever changing scenery enjoyed in both.
