L'histoire d'un chef Relais & Châteaux

Can you tell us the story of your property?

The Airds Hotel is one of Scotland’s most famous luxury boutique hotels. The hotel started as an 18th century ferry inn with only 4 rooms and has grown over the years into a luxury hotel which is set amongst the most stunning scenery in the little hamlet of Port Appin on the shores of Loch Linnhe on the west coast of Argyll in the Scottish Highlands.

What is your trademark in terms of the art of generosity and warmth?

Scottish country house meets elegance. The hotel oozes charm and guests enjoy the intimacy and a sense of exclusivity. The team makes every guest feel like he or she are part of our family and are staying in their home away from home.

What memories do you want to give your customers?

The Airds is sophisticated, charming and romantic, combining this with the breath-taking surroundings with gastronomic excellence. The hotel is well-known worldwide for high quality local cuisine and friendly and professional service.


What passions do you share with your guests at your property?

My passion is to ensure that the guest leaves and is already planning their return visit.  I simply love the west coast of Scotland and Port Appin is an idyllic small village, but with so much to do and it is these activities that I love seeing guests enjoy. Our garden provides access to Loch Linnhe and breath-taking views of the Morvern mountains. We are located in the perfect spot to soak up the beauty of Scotland. Take a boat trip to visit the nearby seal colonies and the famous Castle Stalker or enjoy a day out and picnic on the neighbouring Isle of Lismore. Walking and cycling routes surround the hotel, all creating wonderful memorable experiences.
