Raasay Wood Fuel


Using local “Raasay Larch” felled by Forestry and Land Scotland the Wood Fuel project aims to reduce fuel poverty and fossil fuel use by providing our residents with reduced cost wood to heat their homes. Using locally sourced wood also reduces the emissions from transportation and provides security of supply.  

All orders are prepared by volunteers and the money raised supports Raasay’s local development trust.

Pop into The Pit on Saturday mornings to find out more or volunteer.

Orders can be placed through the Raasay Wood Facebook Page  or by emailing Elizabeth Macleod at  raasaydevelopmenttrust@gmail.com


RDT and the wood fuel group have had to make the difficult decision to increase the price of a load of wood.

This is the first increase in price since the enterprise was set up and is primarily due to the increase in the cost of diesel.

As of 1 September 2022,  the costs will be as follows:

Residents/non-commercial £55, kindling £6

Non-residents/commercial £75, kindling £7.50

Kindling and bags of logs are also available from Raasay Community Stores.


If you wish to pay by cash/cheque, please leave this on your doorstep for Angus to collect or you can post your payment to RDT’s office:

c/o Raasay Community Hall, Inverarish IV40 8PA

Payment can also be made by bank transfer: email Elizabeth at  raasaydevelopmenttrust@gmail.com for the details.
