The Island
Cullins in Winter
Old Iron Ore Pier

The Isle of Raasay, one of the Inner Hebrides is located between the Isle of Skye and Applecross on the Scottish mainland of Wester Ross.
Because of its geography  Raasay is an excellent  location for viewing the Cullins of Skye and the Torridon mountains.

There is very varied and interesting geology on Raasay. In the early twentieth century the island had its own iron mine, the historical archaeological evidence of which can still be seen.
