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*.

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.
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! :)
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.
A small distillery that packs a punch. We stayed and had the tour. A great deal of thought has went into this building and it shows. A modern take combined with natural landscape delivers a blend as good as the fine whisky we were given. Rooms are bright and tastefully decorated with a Scottish twist. A complimentary dram on arrival and 3 drams on the tour makes this new distillery a triumph. Our local tour guided provided an excellent tour and made plenty of time for us to enjoy our whisky. This is the finest of island hospitality. Well done.
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
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!
Stayed one night at the distillery in late July on the way up to Lewis. A very warm and genuine welcome, and a very comfortable room with a wonderful view across to Skye and The Cuillins. Perfectly peaceful and an enjoyable continental breakfast in the morning. I’ll definitely be back, hopefully for a longer stay.
Amazing little lodging that is part of a distillery. The room was really nice and cozy and the staff was amazing. I highly recommend this place is you are needing an inexpensive, laid-back location for trips to the Isle of Skye and the associated areas.
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!
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.
