About Airor

Airor is situated at the end of the public highway from Inverie in Knoydart, and is one of the most remote spots in Scotland. There is a small cluster of houses in Airor with about four permanent residents. By 2005 the quay was in a very poor state of repair but Nigel Boston of Pier House spent some 30,000 to have it repaired by local resident Toby Robinson. A Falklands War landing craft is currently moored there.

Mark Rogers of Knoydart Sculptural Services, who has lived at Airor since 1999, has sculpted a statue of a fisherman which now stands on the jetty at Airor. A similar statue by the same sculptor, but with the fisherman holding a young girl's hand, was erected on the jetty at Mallaig in 2006.
