We are the only distillery in Scotland where you can stay overnight in the same building as a working distillery.
Wake up at the distillery for an unforgettable experience, where whisky and hospitality go hand in hand.
Borodale House, a Victorian villa transformed into a state-of-the-art distillery with six ensuite bedrooms, can be booked individually or by groups of up to 12.
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, 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.
Designed for relaxation and comfort, our rooms provide the perfect retreat for your Hebridean adventure, featuring a flat-screen Freeview TV, Nespresso tea & coffee machine, feather pillows and duvets with luscious The White Company linen.
Your room also features en suite facilities with a rain shower, fluffy towels and luxurious toiletries sourced from Scottish Fine Soaps Company.
The tours will be slightly different this year in line with Scottish Government guidelines, but the welcome as warm as ever. For your safety, we have new distancing measures, a one-way system, hand sanitiser and face masks on arrival, and we can only accept payment by card.

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.

We stayed for two nights because Skye was full. Turned out to be wonderful and fun to stay at a distillery. Our room was comfortable but a little small. It is a very new hotel so they are still working on some of the details. The building is beautiful and so are the rooms. Including one drink of their ‘While We Wait’ whisky was a treat! They were friendly and very helpful. They wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. It is worth the trip and Raasay is a great place to visit.
Very welcoming and helpful staff, very clean facility.
Everyone we have met was very friendly and passionate about their distillery!
Fantastic stay! Couldn’t recommend more!
Our first visit to stay on the beautiful island of Raasay and we were fortunate enough to stay for two glorious nights at the distillery. It is in the fabulous setting just a short walk from the ferry terminal. Oozes luxury and our room was a double overlooking the sea and hills. Bed exceptionally comfy and linens silky smooth. Toiletries from Scottish fine soaps, flat screen tv in room but you don’t need tv with the ever changing scenery outside. Coffee maker and tea in room with lovely nibbles.
Beautifully renovated accommodation manage by the most friendly and helpful staff you will find anywhere. Great base for walks around Raasay and a 2 night stay is worth considering with Calum’s Road walk on day 1 and Hallaig walk on day 2. Breakfast with outstanding views over to Skye and you simply head off for the ferry once you see it crossing over from Skye. Ferry for 2 adults and the car £20…very reasonable indeed. The distillery tour is as good as any and interestingly is given by a German lady who has taken up residence on Raasay with her partner.
Fantastic Room overlooking the Isle of Skye. Beautifully furnished to the highest quality. The Staff were extremely helpful and polite.
We have been there 2 nights on our 10 days Scotland Trip. It’s on Raasay island with a wonderful view on isle of Skye. It’s brand new in a renovated old building next to a distillery. The employees are professional and very helpful, the breakfast excellent and dinner can be booked at near Raasay House. Ferry goes every 1-2 hours to Skye. Highly recommended!
Great stay, probably the only one of its kind.
11:00am & 1:45pm Monday-Friday
Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm
