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.
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.
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*.

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!
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.
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.
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.

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.
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 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!
