Accommodation to suit any taste & budget…

Bed & breakfast
Raasay Distillery started producing spirit in 2017, based around the historic Borodale House overlooking the Sound of Raasay.
Perhaps the only distillery in Scotland that provides luxury accommodation within the same building as a working distillery, offering guided tours of the distillery and ending with a whisky tasting. Three bedrooms are blessed with stunning views of the Cuillin mountains on the Isle of Skye, while the other three overlook the production yard of the distillery.

Curlews Nest is an idyllic self catering island retreat on the tranquil Isle of Raasay, a 25-minute ferry journey from the east coast of the Isle of Skye.
Curlews Nest is a traditional crofter’s style cottage, fully refurbished to modern standards.
The cottage is well located immediately outside Raasay’s main village of Inverarish, and around 1 mile from the island’s CalMac ferry terminal .
The cottage is in a very remote position, and is the highest dwelling in the Western Isles as far as I can see.
The sunroom faces west and offers a panorama of Skye, from the Cuillin mountains to the tip of Trotternish (well, you have to step outside for that).
Huge SWW sky.
A traditional croft cottage, with many original features.
Eyre Point Cottage occupies a glorious position on the south west coast of the island, about 4 miles south of the ferry terminal.
Standing at the water’s edge and reached by a well-tended drive with a sheep gate, it looks out across the Sound of Raasay with breathtaking views of the Cuillin.
Inverarish is the only real settlement on Raasay, snuggled among woodlands a couple of miles from where the ferry lands. It is a hamlet of little lanes and quiet roads, with one excellent general store and a hotel a little way to the north, beside the outdoor centre.
Inverarish Cottage is one of a small terrace of traditional dwellings which once housed prisoners of war sent here during the First World War. It’s doubtful if they’d recognise it now, so well has it been refurbished and modernised.
Sitting in a quiet spot down a shared driveway under 5 minutes’ drive from Raasay’s ferry port is Kilima, a large detached house that is perfect for those who love the outdoors and exploring the natural beauty of the charming Isle of Raasay.
