Luxury Isle of Raasay Accommodation

Isle of Raasay Distillery Whisky Hotel

We are the only distillery in Scotland where you can stay overnight in the same building as a working distillery.

Wake up at the Raasay Distillery hotel for an unforgettable experience, where whisky and hospitality go hand in hand.

Borodale House, a Victorian villa transformed into a state-of-the-art whisky hotel with six ensuite bedrooms, can be booked individually or by groups of up to 12.

Borodale House

Experience life at the distillery first hand in Borodale House, a magical Hebridean escape.

With some of the best views from any distillery in Scotland, at the Isle of Raasay Distillery Hotel you can wake up to some of the #BestDistilleryViews of the Isle of Skye’s Cuillin mountains and our team distilling a new batch of whisky or gin.

Borodale House is named after Dùn Borghadal, a nearby broch dating from around 800 BC. Originally designed in the 1800s by Alexander Ross, the house was beautifully restored to perfectly integrate the old with the new.

Plan Your Journey

Getting to the Isle of Raasay is easier than you might think.

On the Isle of Skye, continue your journey to Sconser Ferry Terminal. Here, step aboard the CalMac ferry and enjoy a scenic 25-minute sailing across to Raasay.

Once you reach the Isle of Raasay, the distillery is less than half a mile from the pier and it is well-placed for exploring the island’s breathtaking natural beauty and historic sites, including the iconic Dun Caan mountain, Brochel Castle and enigmatic Calum’s Road.

Our Whisky Hotel Reviews

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.
