Sail away to iconic Argyll coast hotel

by Argyll and Isles Tourism Cooperative 19 May 10:10 UTC

Marine travellers are encouraged to embark on a voyage of discovery and visit Argyll and the Isles on the west coast of Scotland, as the region launches its bid to become Scotland's Sustainable Sailing Capital.

Guests to the area can find a safe anchorage at The Pierhouse Hotel, which is tucked away in a sheltered bay close on the shores of Loch Linnhe. The Pierhouse Hotel is located in a spectacular setting with breathtaking views to the islands of Lismore and Mull, the mountains of Morven and the Ardnamurchan peninsula.

Nautical visitors are being encouraged to sail and then dine at The Pierhouse Hotel & Restaurant. The hotel has an award-winning seafood restaurant which is led by head chef Michael Leathley, who has created menus filled with local produce, including the freshest langoustines, mussels and lobsters harvested from Loch Linnhe and Loch Etive, as well as fine handpicked oysters from the oyster beds of Loch Creran, just 10 minutes from the hotel.

The Pierhouse Hotel & Restaurant was recently crowned the 'National Restaurant of the Year' at the Hotels of the Year Scotland Awards 2023-24, has two AA rosettes and is one of only three Argyll restaurants listed in the Michelin Guide for Great Britain and Ireland 2024.

There are seven moorings for use by hotel guests and visitors from April to October.
