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 breath-taking natural beauty and historic sites, including the iconic Dun Caan mountain, Brochel Castle and the enigmatic Calum’s Road.
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
Stayed one night at the distillery in late July on the way up to Lewis. A very warm and genuine welcome, and a very comfortable room with a wonderful view across to Skye and The Cuillins. Perfectly peaceful and an enjoyable continental breakfast in the morning. I’ll definitely be back, hopefully for a longer stay.
Our first visit to stay on the beautiful island of Raasay and we were fortunate enough to stay for two glorious nights at the distillery. It is in the fabulous setting just a short walk from the ferry terminal. Oozes luxury and our room was a double overlooking the sea and hills. Bed exceptionally comfy and linens silky smooth. Toiletries from Scottish fine soaps, flat screen tv in room but you don’t need tv with the ever changing scenery outside. Coffee maker and tea in room with lovely nibbles.
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.
We arrived via the ferry from Sconser and had a fantastic experience at the distillery. It was relaxed but also very well organised, the staff so friendly and enthusiastic. Our accommodation was perfect. Great views over to Skye giving an atmospheric visit as the weather was being a tad moody. Breakfast couldn’t be faulted – taken in a room with stunning views. We had a tour of the distillery before we departed back to Skye given by Steve which was also excellent. So thanks to the team, we had a fantastic time and will spread the word to family & friends to come and see for themselves.
It is hard to review the stay at the distillery without reviewing the island of Raasay itself. Though the distillery has brought new life to the island, a sense of piece and calm pervades everything. The distillery and its accommodation commands breathtaking views across the sound to the Cuillins on Skye, and the architecture allows one to take full advantage, whatever the weather. We were blessed with a fantastic day, full sun and a comfortable breeze to make walking a pleasure. I have seen Raasay with other faces, but could never tire. The distillery offers very comfortable, modern accommodation, and the most peaceful night’s rest one could ever hope for. Breakfast is simple, but fresh and faultless. There is no restaurant, most visitors will take other meals in nearby Raasay House which boasts an excellent restaurant as well as good pub meals in its bar. This is not a place for people looking for bright lights and bustle (even by Hebridean standards) but somewhere to enjoy the slow life. Staff are exemplary, and have the time to take out to talk. About the distillery, the island, the weather, life in general – but never intrusive. We came from London reliant only on public transport. This works. Bicycles are available for hire from the hall if you wish to explore. There is a concise and well chosen library for guests, the view from the window is better than the telly, though TV is provided in the bedrooms in the unlikely event you want it and wifi that works if you need it. Take a walk in the slow lane, you won’t regret it.
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.
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.
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.
Barbara the hospitality manager was excellent, very helpful and knowledgable. Beautiful place, and definitely plan to return. Waiting staff at Raasay House were also excellent.

Getting to Raasay is easier than you might think, despite it being a remote Hebridean island.
By ferry from the Isle of Skye is the only way to reach Raasay. On the Isle of Skye continue your journey to the ferry terminal at Sconser. Here you step aboard the CalMac ferry and enjoy the scenic 25-minute sail across to Raasay.
