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*.

Beautifully renovated historic house with whisky distillery on site. Relaxing atmosphere (if it rained 24/7 I would happily curl up in a comfy chair with a book and a dram) and helpful friendly staff. Loved Raasay for it’s quiet, it’s scenery, it’s history and it’s people. Whiskeys pretty tasty too!
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.
Me and my wife enjoyed our stay here. The tour of the distillery was informative and fun. Room was well equipped, stylish and comfortable. Lovely big shower and a heavenly bed. Staff were also warm, welcoming and friendly and the honesty is a superb part of the experience. Breakfast with a view was fantastic and locally sourced however a cooked breakfast option was needed after a little too much whiskey the night before! :)
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!
Fantastic view. Lounge with whisky bar was a great to relax and enjoy the view. Brand new. Personal touch. Warm and welcoming. Calm and relaxing. Sleeping in a micro distillery. Nice continental breakfast.
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.
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!
Comfort, views and whisky all make a great stay! Great facilities, beautiful views, superb breakfast. Love the honesty bar.
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.
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.
Guests staying at Raasay Distillery will have access to our executive lounge located on the ground floor with a fully stocked bar, teas, coffees and snacks.

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.
