Our oysters are hand-picked from Loch Creran oyster beds; mussels and langoustines are harvested from Loch Linnhe and Loch Etive; and our lobsters and crab are kept mouth-wateringly fresh in creels at the end of the pier which guests may view, subject to tides. In addition to seafood, we serve a variety of beautifully fresh local meat and wild game from farms and private estates, as well as vegetarian dishes.

Our individually styled bedrooms have a fresh, contemporary feel to them. The Pierhouse's unique water's edge setting provides pure peace and tranquillity to give you a perfect night's sleep on our super-comfortable beds, soft cotton sheets, feather down duvets and beautifully soft pillows.
Just around the corner from The Pierhouse, there are few views more dramatic - or well known - in all of Highland Scotland than that of the medieval Castle Stalker sitting standing on its island Eilean an Stalcaire (Hunters Island) at the mouth of Loch Laich, against the backdrop of the mountains of Morvern.
Appin is ideal for gentle walks. A leisurely 10 minute stroll from the rear of the hotel will take you to Clach Thoull, Gaelic for 'hole in the rock' - a dramatic natural stone arch formed countless years ago. The route takes you along an easy shore path with wild orchids and harebells in the springtime, whilst lush rhododendron and brilliant heather colours the late summer and autumn views. Local wildlife include sea otters, hares, seals, and a vast array of birdlife including oyster catchers, guillemots, Eider ducks, kestrels and sea eagles.
Warm & welcoming
Warm and welcoming, the Ferry Bar looks directly out over Port Appin's pier and across Loch Linnhe to the island of Lismore and beyond. Taking its name from the foot passenger ferry to Lismore (there has been a ferry service from Port Appin since at least 1750) the Ferry Bar offers lunch and evening bar menus throughout the year.
A highlight of the Ferry Bar is our comprehensive selection of malt whiskies, each malt carefully selected to ensure we have a comprehensive range which caters for most palates.
As well as whiskies, there's now an exciting world of new Scottish craft gins to explore - and the Ferry Bar is increasingly the place for just such an exploration. Come and see for yourself!
