Port Appin

We at McIntosh Tours are constantly travelling to find the best places to stay in the Scottish Highlands to ensure our recommendations for accommodation while on multi-day, bespoke, luxury tours are up to the minute and relevant to out clients. Out latest trip took us to Port Appin in Argyll staying at the 3 star Pierhouse Hotel. The hotel is a delightfully remodelled Pier Master’s home Scottish Food Awards & Academy: Seafood Restaurant of the Year 2017/18 and Head Chef, Sergejs Savickis, wins Young Chef of the Year 2018 at the Scottish Food Awards. The wine was well chosen and the Ferry Bar had a respectable choice of whisky to choose from. One plea from us would be to include some well chosen craft beers on draft in the bar. Rooms are contemporary and the staff very keen to please. A short ferry trip from outside the hotel to the small island of Lismore was great in the October sun. As was the 4 miles cycle to the café, via the medieval burial stones and the Iron Age Broch (Fort). This was rewarded with a lovely museum which has a licensed homely café serving soup, paninis and burgers to please.  Two nights is a good length of time before moving north to another small hamlet.
