Comfort and joy – a Scottish Christmas at Airds
By: Airds Hotel
Arrive to home-made seasonal cakes and tea. Christmas Eve gets under way with a champagne reception for guests followed by a candlelit 5-course gourmet dinner. Wake on Christmas Day to Airds' legendary Scottish breakfast and Buck's Fizz. With traditional Christmas Lunch not served until 4pm, there's plenty of time to enjoy the day: enter the annual Port Appin treasure hunt, burn some calories on a long walk or bike ride in the beautiful surrounding countryside, or simply relax by the fire. Mince pies, Christmas cake and mulled wine will be offered at lunchtime and light snacks in the evening. On Boxing Day, breakfast and dinner are taken at leisure and once the winner of the treasure hunt is announced, the day is free to explore further afield. Enjoy a final sumptuous Scottish breakfast on the 27th before leaving - relaxed, revived and ready for New Year.
Airds Hotel & Restaurant offers an escape from the stress and hard work of a do-it-yourself Christmas. Let master chef Chris Stanley do the cooking while Airds' team of friendly staff takes care of decorating and clearing up and the owners welcome you to their charming home, a former ferry inn turned internationally acclaimed Relais & Châteaux hotel. For extra privacy, Airds also offers accommodation in a secluded cottage for up to four guests, priced at £890 per person for the same package. For a four-night stay at Airds from Sunday December 23rd, add £125 per person (2 sharing ½-board). Single supplements are available on request.
