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.
