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 absolutely loved this place! Perfect location, very comfy and clean. We felt welcomed from the start! Thank you Barbara for spoiling us :) We will be back!
Great stay, probably the only one of its kind.
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.
Lovely relaxing weekend very memorable. Fantastic spot to stop at. Superb friendly staff. Very well appointed. Bedding and towels crisp and new. Lounge area has a great little bar and selection of books if weather poor. View from the breakfast area is to die for.
Everyone we have met was very friendly and passionate about their distillery!
Fantastic hotel and stunning location
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.
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
Wonderful staff in a tranquil setting!
My partner and I just stayed for 2 nights, would definitely recommend. The room was lovely and very clean. We had a sea view and lots of nice little touches (coffee machine was great!). The staff were lovely and the breakfast was great. Couldn’t fault it!
