We stayed two nights at the Isle of Raasay Distillery and were completely charmed by the friendliness of the staff, the beauty of the locale, and the power of the local history. We much appreciated the upgrade of our room and the delightful distillery tour. Highly recommended. Calum was memorable in his erudition concerning local tradition, including his grandfather’s special history. Thanks to his enthusiasm we drove to the end of the island, on frightfully narrow roads, overlooking superb sea vistas, arriving at the ruins of Brochel Castle and the monument to the unforgettable Calum’s Road, one of the quietly most moving sites I’ve ever visited in traveling to many countries around the world. We will long cherish the memory of our visit to Raasay Island Distillery and hope to return again soon.
Great location and facility for a quiet couple on nights away from all the hassle of the mainland with plenty of walks to do on Raasay (Forestry Commission). Beautifully renovated building with 6 bedrooms and a guest lounge plus breakfast room with stunning views of Skye. Breakfast was very good and evening meals in the Raasay House Hotel 200 yards down the road all works very well. Distillery tour also very good as is the tasting afterwards. Just book it and do it. Everyone on Raasay was very welcoming and helpful.
Must see if you’re on the Isle of Skye or Raasay. The site has been designed to capture a picturesque views which doesn’t disappoint. The distillery has a mix of new and old buildings with a story behind them. I highly recommend a quick visit. Looking forward to tasting their finished product.
Interesting guiding following the whiskey making process including the history of Raasay from prehistoric to present time. Even our teenagers thought it was interesting although they’re not liking whiskey. We wish the company all luck in the future. Maybe we´ll come back all the way from Sweden an other year to explore more of the beautiful island and taste the “real” Raasay whiskey.
The most welcoming and family feel you could wish for. An amazing setting to spend a couple of days in. Thank you Iain and all the others who made our experience so amazing. See you again.
We dropped into the distillery late on Sunday afternoon and had an excellent tour with Fiona. Fiona was fantastic and provided a very relaxed, interesting and informative tour. We would have stayed and chatted longer but unfortunately we had a ferry to catch. Thoroughly recommended.
We arrived via the ferry from Sconser and had a fantastic experience at the distillery. It was relaxed but also very well organised, the staff so friendly and enthusiastic. Our accommodation was perfect. Great views over to Skye giving an atmospheric visit as the weather was being a tad moody. Breakfast couldn’t be faulted – taken in a room with stunning views. We had a tour of the distillery before we departed back to Skye given by Steve which was also excellent. So thanks to the team, we had a fantastic time and will spread the word to family & friends to come and see for themselves.
A small distillery that packs a punch. We stayed and had the tour. A great deal of thought has went into this building and it shows. A modern take combined with natural landscape delivers a blend as good as the fine whisky we were given. Rooms are bright and tastefully decorated with a Scottish twist. A complimentary dram on arrival and 3 drams on the tour makes this new distillery a triumph. Our local tour guided provided an excellent tour and made plenty of time for us to enjoy our whisky. This is the finest of island hospitality. Well done.
They say that the number of day trips to Raasay has increased since the distillery opened. Proving the intangible draw that such places have on the tourist masses. This one is a brand new, clean and professional operation. It is making whiskey – but nothing for sale for several years yet. Instead it offers tastings of a whiskey made elsewhere but to the individual specifications of Isle of Raasay. With the intention of creating an approximation of what the local drop will one day be. Very lovely people manning the front desk and doing the tour. With a wealth of info about the island as well as the distillery. I look forward to tasting their own drop one day.
Having visited a few other distilleries, this is probably the best visit I went through. The visit will not only take through the process of Whisky making but will also help you learn more about this beautiful Island and the people who live on it. Great place, great people… great Whisky!
