The hotel, standing white sentinel-like, has magnificent views of the wild south Devon coastline, an everchanging picture. Its proximity to the sea gives it a sense of nautical chic and authentic charm that can’t be manufactured.

Airds Hotel and Restaurant, near Oban

Set on the magnificent west coast of Scotland – one of the most romantic destinations in the world – Airds combines intimate interiors and warm service with endless, extraordinary views.

Throw a blanket around your shoulders and watch the light playing across Loch Linnhe, its sheer size and majesty astonishing. How often do you witness beauty as wild as this?

Take in the Morvern mountains, the sunlight catching the peaks. If you look for long enough they blend into the clouds and look like the sea, the horizon somewhere between the two.

Inside take your place by the fire in this former ferry inn, a single malt to hand…the barman will find one to suit your taste.
