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.

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.

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!
Truly exceptional place to stay. Very comfortable rooms, best breakfast room view on the planet, very friendly, efficient staff.
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.
We enjoyed our stay from the first second to the last! Much love to detail went into the hotel! It was amazing! Breakfast with a view! Honesty bar with a view! Lovely staff and beautiful and clean rooms!
What an incredible, and incredibly special place.
Amazing little lodging that is part of a distillery. The room was really nice and cozy and the staff was amazing. I highly recommend this place is you are needing an inexpensive, laid-back location for trips to the Isle of Skye and the associated areas.
Me and my wife enjoyed our stay here. The tour of the distillery was informative and fun. Room was well equipped, stylish and comfortable. Lovely big shower and a heavenly bed. Staff were also warm, welcoming and friendly and the honesty is a superb part of the experience. Breakfast with a view was fantastic and locally sourced however a cooked breakfast option was needed after a little too much whiskey the night before! :)
Amazingly remote and fantastic service. The distillery is remote and the staff are exceptionally friendly and good. The best view on the island.
Stayed at the Distillery for 2 nights, it’s a fantastic location, the staff are some of the friendliest folk you could hope to meet. The room itself was spotless, with a lovely bathroom, an excellent shower in a hotel, what a bonus. The view over to Skye is probably one of the best at any hotel I’ve stayed at, oh and the whisky is pretty good too.
