The Isle of Raasay

The 20-minute ferry journey that transports passengers to the Isle of Raasay from Skye offers up a feast for the eyes in every direction. Breath-taking views of the Cuillin mountain range, Skye’s east coast and the Five Sisters of Kintail abound, while sea birds, seals and porpoises vie for attention in the waters below.

Once on the rugged and rocky ‘Isle of the Roe Deer’, the exploration begins. The community-owned Raasay House – complete with its wonderful garden – is an excellent first port of call with a superb range of outdoor activities on offer. Along the road is the Isle of Raasay distillery, where gin and whisky fans can enjoy guided tours and tastings. Beyond here, the best way to get to know Raasay is on foot with fantastic walks and hikes in all directions across this spectacular island landscape.
