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. Raasay is well connected to the Isle of Skye by a short 25 minute scenic ferry connecting Sconser ferry terminal Skye to Churchton Bay ferry terminal on Raasay.
From rolling hills, to native forests and secluded beaches, explore any part of the island with the backdrop of the breathtaking panorama of the Cuillin to the West of the island and Torridon to the East.
Raasay is ideally suited to those with a love of the outdoors and wildlife, with excellent walks and trails where one can experience the peace and tranquility of the island. From climbing Dun Caan to exploring Hallaig or Inver, there are lots of routes to suit any age and ability.
Dinning on the island is available at Raasay House who provide lunch, dinner and a friendly bar. Raasay House is only a 15 minute walk from our bed & breakfast. The Larch Box, located next to the distillery, offers takeaway food and tea, coffee and cakes during the day.
The island offers a number of activities with the Isle of Raasay Distillery offering a range of whisky and gin tastings and tours, local art galleries, gift shops, Raasay Community Stores as well as adventure sports courses and bike hire available from Raasay House.
This was my second stay at Allt Arais, and I was happy to return to this delightful spot. Anda cooks a wonderful breakfast, the rooms are comfortable and very clean, water pressure in the shower is terrific, and the views are exceptional. I hope to return!
Fresh, clean, comfortable, modern, spacious, ground floor only, Excellent breakfast. Good bed and bathroom facilities, best shower, appreciated quality of care and environment, easy access and parking, and great view of sea. Couldn’t ask for more in a B&B
This was our second stay at Anda’s welcoming and comfortable B&B. The consistently high standard of our accommodation included freshly cooked full Scottish breakfasts, comfortable, spacious and spotless rooms, and modern bathrooms (including a bath). There is a communal lounge room, with views of Skye and the sea, plenty of parking space and easy access to the Ferry Terminal, Raasay House and the Distillery, by car, or a fifteen minute walk. Thank you Anda for looking after us so well, in your beautiful home on the Isle of Raasay.
We were booked in last minute and our experience was incredible! The views are breathtaking, the room is 5 star and immaculate, better than any hotel I have ever seen. The owner could not be more helpful, and the breakfast is delicious! The whole experience was amazing, it was my husband’s favourite part of the holiday! We will be back
We really wanted to stay on Skye but everything was booked. We are so glad we found Allt Arais on the Isle of Raasay which is just a 25 minute ferry ride away. The room was beautiful, spacious, and very up to date. We had views of sheep and the mountains. Breakfast was beyond our expectations. Just so much thought and detail into taking care of her guests. Thank you Anda! I hope to be back soon!!
We had the most wonderful time here. Anda was so welcoming and helpful, and the house is actually stunning. I wish I could have stayed for far longer than a couple of nights, I will definitely stay here next time I come to Raasay.
I stayed for a couple of nights and found everything very comfortable – lovely spacious room, comfortable bed, fabulous views from the bedrooms, good shower, all spotlessly clean and excellent breakfast. Thanks!
Spent 2 nights on raasay visiting my son and family, Stayed at Allt Arais with my daughter and son in law what can I say everything was 1st class beautiful house with excellent furnishings brilliant shower. Superb breakfast you must try the porridge! Anda is a delightful host and nothing is to much trouble for her, we went out in the evening but Anda offered to make evening meal if require and judging by all other standards I am sure that to would have been superb Mary E
We recently stayed for two nights at Allt Arais on the beautiful Island of Raasay. Mrs Nicolson was very welcoming and offers a very well appointed B&B in a wonderful location. Our room was large and well furnished with a good size en suite all of which was well decorated and exceptionally clean. We had a wonderful view from our window with the mountains of Skye as the backdrop. Breakfast was very well presented and the choice including the “full Scottish” was up to fine hotel standard. If you like wonderful scenery in a peaceful location then I have no hesitation in recommending Allt Arais as the place to stay.
Absolutely beautiful island. Fantastic views and a fabulous bed and breakfast. We were welcomed on the door step with a lovely smile and felt at home straight away. Our rooms were very clean well decorated and a very comfortable bed. Our two night stay was the highlight of our Scottish holiday.
