Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

This cottage is in a very remote position, and very high for a dwelling in the Western Isles, quite possibly the highest. The sunroom faces West and offers an astonishing panorama of the Sound, Skye from the Cuillin mountains to the tip of Trotternich, and the ever-changing sky. It is a traditional croft cottage, with many original features. You can walk directly from it both up Dun Caan and down to the beautiful Inver beach. "Utter, utter bliss." Please take a look at the reviews.

This is a very special place, and we were so fortunate to spend a few days there. Originally we were looking for a place to stay on Skye, and Oliver's place on Raasay came up. We are so glad we made this choice, as Raasay is a quiet and beautiful isle with much character and…

Our time in Raasay was the highlight of our trip! The cottage was beautiful, remote, and had the best views of the entire island. We loved staying there and wish we could have stayed much longer.

We have stayed in the cottage three times now and hope to be back next year. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else on Raasay. It is tranquil and cosy, with stunning views. A true escape from hectic life.

Beautiful scenery from the living room - spent our whole 5 days there. Extremely remote which was perfect for our honeymoon - but make sure you do a big shop before you go as there isn’t much in the shop on the island and it has limited opening hours. Thanks for a great stay.
