The Island

Raasay is an island off the coast of Skye, Scotland. It is famous for its diverse landscapes and history; from the distinctive flat topped peak of Dun Caan, steep clifftops and winding forest trails to an abandoned castle, an ancient broch and famous sights such as Calum’s Road, Raasay House and the new Isle of Raasay Distillery. It is the birthplace of Sorley Maclean, one of Scotland’s preeminent Gaelic poets. Much of the island is accessible by car. The island has two hotels, Raasay House and accommodation in Raasay Distillery as well as several B&Bs and short-term rentals.


Despite its modest size, Raasay is one of the most geologically diverse landmasses in the world. From rolling hills, to native forests and secluded beaches, explore any part of the island and the backdrop you will enjoy is a breathtaking panorama of the Cuillins to the West and Torridon to the East.
