Isle of Raasay Distillery Accommodation

Isle of Raasay Distillery Whisky Hotel

We are the only distillery in Scotland where you can stay overnight in the same building as a working distillery.

Wake up at the Raasay Distillery hotel for an unforgettable experience, where whisky and hospitality go hand in hand.

Borodale House, a Victorian villa transformed into a state-of-the-art whisky hotel with six ensuite bedrooms, can be booked individually or by groups of up to 12.

Borodale House

Experience life at the distillery first hand in Borodale House, a magical Hebridean escape.

With some of the best views from any distillery in Scotland, at the Isle of Raasay Distillery Hotel you can wake up to some of the #BestDistilleryViews of the Isle of Skye’s Cuillin mountains and our team distilling a new batch of whisky or gin.

Borodale House is named after Dùn Borghadal, a nearby broch dating from around 800 BC. Originally designed in the 1800s by Alexander Ross, the house was beautifully restored to perfectly integrate the old with the new.

Plan Your Journey

Getting to the Isle of Raasay is easier than you might think.

On the Isle of Skye, continue your journey to Sconser Ferry Terminal. Here, step aboard the CalMac ferry and enjoy a scenic 25-minute sailing across to Raasay.

Once you reach the Isle of Raasay, the distillery is less than half a mile from the pier and it is well-placed for exploring the island’s breathtaking natural beauty and historic sites, including the iconic Dun Caan mountain, Brochel Castle and enigmatic Calum’s Road.

Our Whisky Hotel Reviews

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.
