Have just spent two fabulous days at the Airds and even the storms can't detract from the wonderful ambience one always experiences here. For me, whatever time of the year, whatever the weather, the stunning scenery is fascinating. Such a warm welcome is guaranteed from the moment you enter Airds and Graeme, Cathy and each member of Staff ensure that... More

We've stayed at Airds quite a few times over the years, usually post festive period recovery! This year we took our son and daughter in law for their first Airds experience. It is just simply a wonderful hotel, very cosy, lovely rooms, fantastically comfortable beds and a location as beautiful as you could wish for, early morning light casting golden... More

The art of hospitality is getting the mix right between luxury surroundings, great food and friendly yet efficient staff and this is what we aim for. Only our guests can judge whether we have...

It sounds like your parents are very wise. 'Exceeding expectation' is exactly what we aim to achieve so I am delighted at your kind words. Our cuisine is a major part of what we offer, being three Rosettes, and so it is important we consistently achieve this standard. Our location is indeed spectacular and whats more, it doesn't matter what... More

I stayed at Airds with my partner for a delightful break away from hectic city life. We were greeted by the friendly staff and owner on arrival and shown to our beautifully decorated room overlooking the loch.

We stayed at Airds for 3 days over Christmas and it couldn't have been more perfect. The service, staff and food were all amazing.

Back for a second year, the Airds was just as impressive. An ideal location for a relaxing and romantic long-weekend, with plenty of refreshing walks in the highlands to choose from.
