The Isle of Raasay proved to be quite the wee gem; not only does it have the most amazing views of Skye and delicious local produce, but it is also the location for the current series of SAS Who Dares Wins!
Our featured islander, Calum from Isle of Raasay, told us all about Raasay’s highlights:
"We're lucky to have two amazing food stops straight off the ferry. The newly opened The Larch Box is fantastic, with fresh soups, baguettes and toasties and some of the best coffee you'll find anywhere in Scotland! Raasay House has an incredible restaurant and an unbeatable view over to Skye - you'll never want to leave!"
"Our annual 'Whisky, Fire and Song' event in November has music, ceilidhs and, perhaps most notably of all, a wonderful torchlit procession! It's a great event that really shows the best of what Raasay has to offer out of the normal tourist season."
"It's tough to find a spot on Raasay that isn't worth visiting, but the secluded beach at Inver is certainly one of Raasay's most picturesque spots. A winding path takes you through forests, over streams and eventually terminates at a beautiful beach, positioned directly across from Portree, with wonderful views over towards Skye."
"But isn't all about the outdoors! Raasay Distillery is a great stop for anyone interested in whisky with warehouse tours, handmade chocolate and whisky tastings, and a chance to try the new Raasay Gin."
If you like what you hear, Raasay is just a short hop across on the CalMac ferries from Sconser on Skye, with crossings 7 days a week, all year round.
