For the most unforgettable 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.
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.
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.
As the nights start to draw in, and we approach the cosy winter nights, we’ve introduced a Winter Whisky Retreat accommodation deal from £89 for stays between 23rd September 2019 and the 31st March 2020*.

Excellently renovated mansion House attached to a distillery with outstanding veiws across to Skye. Room set out perfectly. Bed very comfortable and rain shower, well you may find you spend far to much time under it. Coffee making machine also in room.
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.
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.
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!
We stayed at the Rassay distillery Hotel during the Easter weekend and were treated to a wonderful experience. The accommodation was superb,with a very comfortable residents lounge that includes the most amazing view over to Skye and the Cuillin mountain range. The honesty bar is reasonably priced and well stocked.Watching the sun set over Skye through the huge panoramic window with a dram in hand(naturally!),will live long in the memory. Staff we’re very friendly and helpful, as well as knowledgeable about the whisky industry and the island. Will definitely be back!!
Gorgeous view of Skye across the bay! The staff was incredibly helpful and welcoming, and the distillery’s dens become yours after 6pm. Make sure to explore Raasay’s coastline too while staying at the distillery…what a hidden gem!
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.
The most welcoming and family feel you could wish for. An amazing setting to spend a couple of days in. Thank you Iain and all the others who made our experience so amazing. See you again.
We had an absolutely fantastic stay. From the moment you arrive it is clear the team here are absolutely passionate and proud of their Distillery it’s fantastic architecture, interiors and of course whisky! We had a tour by Patricia who was fantastic… so friendly and knowledgeable about the distillery, the distilling process and the Isle of Raasay. The rooms are beautifully designed and have a high end feel, our room also had a beautiful view. The residents lounge is a lovely place to relax too. Keep up the good work, I can’t wait to visit again!
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!

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.
