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.

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.
