We only stopped for coffee here on our way home to Forres but that lead us to going on a boat trip round the islands. The scones were just out of the oven and delicious and the coffee was good too.

Having had a very nice meal at the PierHouse in February, a friend invited us there on our recommendation. What a disappointment. Monday must be the chef's night off. Starters OK - just. Then our whole table was cleared and we were asked if we would like a dessert. Well, possibly but after the Main Course please. So we waited... More

As it was Father's day in the UK we had booked a table as we thought it could be busy. Only 4 tables occupied throughout our lunch so really didn't have to worry. The food though was not a let down. We started with the mussels cooked with garlic,shallots,cream and smoked salmon and with the scallops on a cauliflower puree... More

We picked this hotel after searching on the internet and we were not disappointed. Despite the awful weather while we were there we had a most enjoyable stay. The room was small but spotless and the bed was extremely comfortable. We ate in the restaurant which was very pleasant. The food was delicious, fresh and well cooked. My only criticism... More

3 of us had a lovely bar meal here today, after stumbling across this little gem by accident on TripAdvisor. I can highly recommend the Cullen Skink as one of the best I have ever tasted. We followed this up with a delicious fish pie and one of our party opted for haddock in batter which they were most pleased... More

The place has a wonderful outlook, overlooking the water with an outdoor seating area. We had a bar meal in the very comfortable bar. You should try the Fish Pie- it's absolutely delicious. The only negative comment I can make is that the owner made a telephone call from behind the bar complaining to someone about unauthorized use of his... More

The focus seems to be on fresh, local sea food. It is simply cooked to enhance the natural flavour and helpings are so generous that I chose to have 2 starters.

We loved it so much, we returned for a second lunch from the small cottage we were renting on Lismore across the Loch. We have eaten at many Michelin rated restaurants including Can Roca in Girona and Pic in Valence and whilst not indulging in the detail of these top (3 Star Michelin) restaurants, the Pierhouse in Port Appin scores...

Good room with new bathroo m and great shower. They did not replace the soap and shower gel as most of the hotel do. If you like television, it is a bit small, only 14 inches. Materass was not the best. Small lounge area.
