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.
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.
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.
We went to walk the southern part of the island (there are 6 great walks and you can day trip from Skye) and found this new feature. Typical distillery but new, clean and friendly people.
Very handsome new distillery with a very warm welcome. The staff seem passionate about sharing their knowledge. And it is always great to see an enterprise flourishing that is not owned by multinational spirit giant. Finger’s crossed that the whisky will taste as good the production site looks.
A pleasant visit in a beautiful setting with an extraordinary guide! Thanks again.
I’m a whisky lover so when I saw the chance to stay at a distillery I had to do it. A fabulous experience from start to finish. I was greeted and checked in by Jennifer who was cheery and gave me a good welcome. I had a quick look round the facilities and must say I was very impressed, the décor is terrific and the views are to die for. My room was brilliant with magnificent views over to the Cuillin mountains and Skye. The room was tastefully decorated and I loved the rocking chair. I had dinner at the nearby Raasay House and the distillery will book your reservation for you. I had a great nights sleep as the bed was extremely comfortable. Did a bit of exploring round the island before heading back for a distillery tour taken by the lovely Christa who gave an informative and interesting tour including a nice wee tasting of some whisky. Another great sleep ensued and up for the continental buffet breakfast which is excellent and views are amazing from the breakfast room. Chloe was nice and smiley and made sure everything ran smoothly at breakfast. Thanks to Lexy for organising everything. It’s a great team up there and I thank all the girls and guys for making it a great experience which I will certainly do again. Here’s looking forward to the distillery whisky.
My second visit in one month. 2 different tours by 2 different hosts but both excellent. The knowledge and passion from these individuals brings the distillery to life. Will share and encourage our guests to visit and we will return to stay a night in your lovely accommodation.
Amazing place, well worth a visit for the hospitality alone. Informative, not only about the distilling process but also about the island as a whole. Lucky enough to meet the co-founder and the architect, but Calum was the star of our tour, an amazingly helpful and friendly lad! We will be back to check out the 3 year old malt, and hopefully a lot sooner!
Had a wonderful tour of the new distillery when me and some friends were visiting raasay for the weekend. Lovely staff and a very informative tour that we managed to fit in on our way to the ferry. Unfortunately i was driving and couldn’t try any but look forward to getting a taste next time im back.
