A Spot of Natural Beauty in the very heart of the Scottish Highlands

This Luxury boutique hotel, a converted ferry inn, on the west coast of Scotland, in the Scottish Highlands, near Oban, Argyll, is set in one of the most stunning locations in the UK and is one of the AA's Red Star award winning luxury romantic hotels in Scotland.  It is where personal service, luxury and a gourmet dining experience in the 3 Rosette restaurant (Michelin recommended) are the very essence of all that is great about a visit to this exclusive retreat. Whether you come for the beautiful views, fantastic Scottish Seafood or romantic setting in luxurious surroundings, you will not be disappointed. The Airds is also the perfect destination for an Exclusive Use Weekend and for a Romantic Wedding. There is also no where better on the west coast to enjoy your Honeymoon.

The atmosphere we create is one of relaxed elegance where friendly staff are attentive & efficient yet not too formal. Our 11 bedrooms and suites are all uniquely designed to soothe your mind before enjoying a superb dinner in our romantic candlelit restaurant.

Don't forget we also offer luxury self catering accommodation in our 2 luxury holiday cottages to rent :-  Bramble Cottage and The Old Smithy, for those who would like a little more independence but with the flexibility of having hotel facilities right next door. The best of both worlds.

Join us for our very special Wine Dinner on Saturday 5th November where Head Chef promises to take you on a gastronomic journey. We also currently have for a time limited period a special 3 night Summer Getaway. We promise you relaxation, excellent service and fantastic food. Alternatively we are offering great value short break packages especially created for those guests who have the time for that extra day after the weekend.

Port Appin is not only a pretty hamlet in itself but is also easily accessible to Oban and Argyll in general with all its beautiful scenery and is located on the West Coast of Scotland, UK. The Airds is a great place to stay to visit the islands of Mull, Iona and Staffa and no trip to the Scottish Highlands would be complete without visiting these magical and special islands.

It is always worth visiting our 'Special offer and short breaks' page to find out what is on offer at any point in time and to see what special events are coming up.
