  • Charitable Support

    The Pierhouse Hotel supports the RNLIThe Pierhouse has a natural affiliation with the sea both geographically and through our local maritime community in Port Appin and on the Island of Lismore. This, together with our close ties with the yachting fraternity who visit us in considerable numbers every year, generates a very strong maritime association. The Pierhouse is consequently proud to have been a supporter of the wonderful voluntary service of the members of the R.N.L.I. for many years past and will continue to be so for many more into the future.

    For the third year in succession, Proprietor Nick took part in the 2013 Mull CycloSportive on the Isle of Mull in support of Help for Heroes & RNLI: 87 gruelling miles in support of these really worthy causes. You can still sponsor him via Nick's Just Giving page.  Every pound makes a difference. Thank you.


“We were staying up the road in a self catering cottage. Well after one dinner at the Pierhouse...any thought of self catering went out the window as we came back night after night for superb food, beautifully cooked, reasonably priced, and with just the best views in Britain. Big mention to lovely staff too... we were never kept waiting long even on Good Friday when holiday crowds and hot weather put them under real pressure. A national treasure.”
