Well just came back from my second trip to Raasay myself and my 7yr old daughter have spent the weekend there, On arrival we were greeted by Jen she is part of the wonderful staff that work there, we got there very early 11am but the staff were great they took our luggage and kept it safe for us while we had a stroll along to the nearby park, came back about 12 noon and had lunch in the bar/cafe the food is lovely there every meal is cooked freshly on request and piping hot, our room was very nice ,clean, quiet and comfortable. i popped the kettle straight on and Emma put the TV on ( something's don't change even when on holiday) Saturday morning Emma went Kayaking with her lovely instructor Lisa, Lisa was very good and patient with Emma as she is very quiet until she gets to know people a little better, they played games in Home Loch in their kayak's Emma really had great fun, in the afternoon Emma done Archery with Lisa she had so much fun and had really found her voice by then !!!
Our Evening meals were superb i couldn't fault them on anything,
Our stay at Raasay House was a lovely one and we cant wait to go back again.
- Also Known As:
- Borodale House Isle Of Raasay, Scotland
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Raasay House is currently being rebuilt after the devastating fire on 18 January 2009. Much of the interior of this historic building was destroyed, just as a multi–million pound refurbishment was nearing completion. Accommodation is now available at the Borodale House hotel just next to Raasay House. Originally built in the 1870s as the Estate Manager’s house, it passed through various owners before becoming a hotel in 1981.All but two of the twelve comfortable en-suite bedrooms have spectacular views across the sound of Raasay to the Cuillin on Skye. The cafe and restaurant, lounge and garden are all open to non-residents and all offer dramatic sea views. We can welcome up to 24 guests in the hotel. For larger groups we can arrange extra accommodation elsewhere on the island. And whether you’re after an informal, relaxing base from which to explore Raasay or an exciting program of activities, you’ll still be able to enjoy the trademark service and hospitality that has always been such an important part of the Raasay House experience. ... more less
