Easily accessed from the Sconser ferry terminal on Skye, Raasay House was recently renovated and fully refurbished. It boasts a range of high-quality rooms.
Once the clan seat of the Macleods of Raasay, the house is set in its own beautiful grounds and offers fabulous views out over the sea to the majestic Cuillin mountains of Skye.

From otters to Golden Eagles and dolphins, there is an abundance of wildlife to watch.
Depending on the weather, Raasay House can arrange activities such as climbing, coasteering, kayaking, gorge walking, archery and sailing.

Raasay House has attracted lots of happy comments on TripAdvisor. The following have been edited for length:
‘Fab weekend. We had a fabulous break at Raasay House. Everything was superb, the owners, staff, food, entertainment, absolutely nothing to fault… We went on a drive around the island, it is beautiful. There are lots of adventure activities available, but you can also just relax.’
‘Just happened to stumble across this wonderful isle. It is remote but certainly worth going. We enjoyed the hiking, exploring the isle and found the staff at Raasay House very welcoming. One of our days was a cold wet and windy day and so we sat by the lovely bay window enjoying the view. Lovely atmosphere. Would recommend this place.’
‘Very good place to visit Skye. We stayed in a private dorm, we would repeat for sure. The place is comfortable and very close to the ferry terminal. You can have dinner both in their restaurant and in their bar (more informal and lower prices).The island is really beautiful so I highly recommend a walk before sunset.’
We have mentioned that this Big Deal from Raasay House would make an excellent gift for intrepid travellers.
It would also make a fantastic winter getaway. Just imagine the water cooler conversation on Monday morning:
‘What did you get up to last week?’
‘Oh, you know. Took the Road to the Isles, explored Skye, ferry to Raasay. Great hotel. Lovely food. Enjoyed a night in the bar. Saw eagles and dolphins. Really nice, actually. You do anything?’
