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*.

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.
We absolutely loved this place! Perfect location, very comfy and clean. We felt welcomed from the start! Thank you Barbara for spoiling us :) We will be back!
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…
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.
We stayed for two nights because Skye was full. Turned out to be wonderful and fun to stay at a distillery. Our room was comfortable but a little small. It is a very new hotel so they are still working on some of the details. The building is beautiful and so are the rooms. Including one drink of their ‘While We Wait’ whisky was a treat! They were friendly and very helpful. They wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. It is worth the trip and Raasay is a great place to visit.
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.
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!!
Visited the Raasay distillery for a two night stay. First of all the location is amazing with stunning views back across to Skye. As soon as you set foot on the ferry it’s almost as if you are heading off to a different world as you leave all the traffic and madness of Skye in tourist season behind! The hotel sits as an integral part of the new distillery building. The rooms are well decorated and whilst not massive are perfectly fine for a short stay. In the hotel are a couple of communal seating areas where we met other visitors and enjoyed some good banter. We ate in the distillery on the first night and the venison was excellent. Naturally being a big whisky drinker we were mainly there for the whisky. The tour was a lot of fun and the unique story behind the distillery came to the fore. Although there isnt any whisky ready to drink for the next few years there were numerous pours of the “Raasay While We Wait” to hand at every opportunity! Beyond the distillery Raasay is well worth a visit. Callums road is a must and the walk up Dun Cann delivers a stunning panorama of the whole area. We will be looking forward to a return
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!
We have been there 2 nights on our 10 days Scotland Trip. It’s on Raasay island with a wonderful view on isle of Skye. It’s brand new in a renovated old building next to a distillery. The employees are professional and very helpful, the breakfast excellent and dinner can be booked at near Raasay House. Ferry goes every 1-2 hours to Skye. Highly recommended!

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.
