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 have sadly closed our visitor centre and whisky hotel until the end of the 2020 season, and we will continue to review this decision in line with official advice. We have reopened our distillery shop Monday-Friday, 9-4pm, with temporary health and safety measures in place.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Stumbled upon Raasay Distillery while browsing for somewhere to stay while touring Skye. The hotel is on an island neighbouring Skye (25 mins by ferry) called Raasay. So glad we found it – perfect setting with views of Skye, the staff are exceptional and personable, the hotel is new modern warm relaxed. AND there is a distillery on site. Rassay has enough history and walks to keep you spellbound but with the peace and quiet that comes with being on a small island. The hotel is for adults. If it rained and I didn’t get out much that would be fine. Yet to explore Skye…
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.
An amazing trip to raasay to visit the accommodation at the isle of raasay distillery From the moment we stepped off the ferry we were well looked after by Barbara and Calum. There are few distilleries you can actually stay at but Raasay is one. Make this something you do in 2018.
It must be a whisky lovers dream to stay at a distillery – well dream no more make it happen. Only 5 minutes walk from the ferry and you will feel like you are on your own special island especially when the day trippers have left. The renovation of Borodale House is sympathetic to the building but provides luxury country accommodation with a modern touch. Rooms offer selection of teas, Nespresso machine and a bottle of the island water. The views over Skye were amazing from our room and we experienced all aspects of weather. There is a lovely lounge to chill out and browse through the vast selection of books, many covering the local area. Good selection of whiskies and gins to enjoy with your book or just admire the views. They operate an honesty bar at reasonable prices. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is a continental breakfast with freshly baked croissants, cereals, fruit, yogurt, meats etc a bit of toast or bread would have been good. Many walking routes nearby but can’t wait to go back and explore the north of the island with the car.
Very welcoming and helpful staff, very clean facility.
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 had a great time staying at the distillery. Facilities were brand new and modern. Breakfast included was good. Staff were extremely helpful. Rooms were very clean and modern. The views are amazing!

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.
