For an unforgettable island experience, stay overnight in Borodale House. This Victorian-era villa incorporated within The Distillery has been beautifully restored into a luxury whisky hotel, executive lounge and visitor centre.
Designed by local architect Olli Blair and renowned Scottish designer Anne Hunter, Borodale House offers six exclusive en-suite bedrooms well-appointed with luxury amenities and comfort and, arguably, the best view from any distillery in Scotland over to the Isle of Skye.
Our top priority is to safeguard everyone’s health and safety during this global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We are perhaps the only distillery in Scotland that provides luxury accommodation within the same building as a working distillery. As well as staying overnight why not enhance your stay by taking a guided tour of the distillery, ending with a whisky tasting.
Three of our bedrooms are blessed with stunning views of the Cuillin mountains on the Isle of Skye, while the other three overlook the production yard of the distillery.
Located between the ferry terminal and Inverarish, the main village on Raasay, our distillery is well-placed for exploring the island’s breathtaking natural beauty and historic sites, including the iconic Dun Caan mountain, Brochel Castle and the enigmatic Calum’s Road.
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.
Our rooms also feature a private en-suite facility with rain shower, fluffy towels and luxurious toiletries sourced from Scottish Fine Soaps Company.
Beautifully renovated historic house with whisky distillery on site. Relaxing atmosphere (if it rained 24/7 I would happily curl up in a comfy chair with a book and a dram) and helpful friendly staff. Loved Raasay for it’s quiet, it’s scenery, it’s history and it’s people. Whiskeys pretty tasty too!
Lovely room with great views, friendly and helpful staff and a relaxed atmosphere made for a very pleasant stay. The distillery tour was also excellent and led by a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. Would highly recommend both to anyone wishing a break away.
Visited the Raasay distillery for a two night stay. First of all the location is amazing with stunning views back across to Skye. As soon as you set foot on the ferry it’s almost as if you are heading off to a different world as you leave all the traffic and madness of Skye in tourist season behind! The hotel sits as an integral part of the new distillery building. The rooms are well decorated and whilst not massive are perfectly fine for a short stay. In the hotel are a couple of communal seating areas where we met other visitors and enjoyed some good banter. We ate in the distillery on the first night and the venison was excellent. Naturally being a big whisky drinker we were mainly there for the whisky. The tour was a lot of fun and the unique story behind the distillery came to the fore. Although there isnt any whisky ready to drink for the next few years there were numerous pours of the “Raasay While We Wait” to hand at every opportunity! Beyond the distillery Raasay is well worth a visit. Callums road is a must and the walk up Dun Cann delivers a stunning panorama of the whole area. We will be looking forward to a return
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.
Len and I have just spent 2 nights at the distillery and you can see what an amazing job the guys have done. From 5 star accommodation to Callum’s amazing tour to Barbara’s hospitality, everything was fantastic! Thanks to Alasdair and Sharon for a wonderful Saturday night😁. We will definitely come back to enjoy it all once again. Thank you Raasay!
What a beautiful spot. We stayed for one night and had the most comfortable, clean, stylish and luxurious room. The staff before and during our stay couldn’t have been more helpful. The Distillery is very modern and stylish and beautifully appointed. A lovely snug with very well appointed honesty bar allowed glorious views in the evening. A special highlight was walking into breakfast and seeing snow on the mountains outside through the picture windows- just beautiful. Breakfast was lovely. We had to dine at the next door Raasay House as there are no meals there than breakfast served but this was also delightful and easily walkable. Do not be put off by the ferry access – it is really easy and very friendly and regular. We didn’t visit the actual distillery on this occasion but plan to return and stay longer. Thank-you
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.
Staying at the Isle of Raasay Distillery was pure bliss! If you love peace and quiet, friendly people and beautiful surroundings, this is the place for you!
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.
Raasay Distillery and surrounding buildings have been very tastefully decorated inside and out. We enjoyed our tour of the distillery, the young lady was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our en-suite bedroom while small was clean and had all amenities and our bed was comfy. The public rooms downstairs were very pleasant to sit in with floor to ceiling windows which offered stunning views across to Skye, the continental style breakfast was very tasty with a good choice of high quality products. Raasay House is less than a five minute walk from the distillery and has a good restaurant, so if you do the distillery tour and have your whisky tastings you don’t have to worry about drinking and driving! If you like walking Dun Caan is a good walk on the island with beautiful views to Skye on one side and the mainland on the other and the possibility of seeing sea or golden eagles (we saw a golden eagle). There is a frequent ferry service from Skye to Raasay so if you are touring on Skye an overnight stay at the Raasay Distillery would be a worthwhile addition.
Guests staying at Raasay Distillery will have access to our executive lounge located on the ground floor with a fully stocked bar, teas, coffees and snacks.
