Airds Hotel restaurant - class is recognised

There are three top restaurants around us. One looks after stars of stage and screen, with its ensuite helipad, another is proud of its Michelin star. But Gillian and I have one outstanding favourite whenever we've saved up some money.

This is the Airds Hotel in Port Appin. It has always been run by really nice people, we get a warm welcome, the food and the service is consistently tops. The views from the place are nothing but Wow!

This total combination is frankly difficult to find elsewhere. With all our family, three generations, 12 of us, we spent the Millenium celebrations there.

Now their chef for the past five years Paul Burns has won the Medaille d’Or for his restaurant and service. He has also won the Best Gourmet menu over £50 atr the Scottish Chefs Awards this year. Proprietors Shaun and Jenny McKivragan must be very proud.

Congrats - all of you. And thanks.

John and Gillian
