Kate's cottage is a detached stone built cottage right on the sea shore with stunning views of the Cuillin mountain range on Skye. The cottage has a double bedroom, a twin bedroom on a mezzanine level, lounge with wood burning stove, kitchen, shower room and cosy dining porch. The beach is directly on the doorstep. A dream location for dolphin and otter spotters! The cottage is within a few minutes walking distance from the ferry terminal and less than five minutes walk from Raasay House where guests can enjoy the restaurant, bar and outdoor facilities offered. The cottage has a garden to the front of the property with table and chairs which has panoramic views of the sea and mountains. The garden behind the cottage is mainly grassed. Please note that the twin room on the mezzanine level is accessed from the lounge by a fixed wooden ladder. It is also not full height. It is therefore not suitable for very small children, however older children and many adults love it. It also has a skylight window for star gazing.

a delightful cottage in a lovely setting
The cottage was clean and comfortable. However there is no mention of the fact that the mezzanine bedroom is accessed by a ladder, which is important when an adult is to occupy the room.
The cottage was everything you could want .
We loved every minute of our stay in this comfortable , cosy , clean cottage with views that will stay with us for ever .The weather we had was not great but their were plenty of dry days that we enjoyed for walking and getting to know the island . The island has a single track road that travells along most of the coast and every corner brings spectacular views . We drove around the island several times and only once met another car . Sandra , the owner of the cottage was a great help with any queries and was always close at hand if we needed anything although like the cars she was rarely seen .
We will definately be back...sooner the better !
Peace and tranquility in Raasay
A lovely cottage in a beautiful spot. If you want peace, beautiful sunsets and the chance to see wildlife on your doorstep then look no further.
Fantastic setting. peace & quiet. Amazing views. Great cottage for 2 adults.
We had bright sunshine all week - not sure how it would have been if it had been cold & wet!
The cottage and Location are fabulous our visit was March the cottage was very cosy with a lovely log burner to keep you warm, the sea is so close it brings wildlife right up to the doorstep with stunning views from every window, it's a place you dream about. Sandra the owner was so helpful I fell we have a new friend in Scotland, can't wait to return.
For our first visit to the Highlands & Islands we were looking for a Cosy cottage by the sea in a quiet location and a log fire. This place ticked all the boxes and more. It was more than just a holiday, it was an experience. The cottage was wonderful, you couldn't get any closer to the sea and when the tide was in the sea was literally inches away. The first couple of days there was a fierce storm and waves crashed into the sea wall and onto the glass fronted porch making for spectacular viewing. Inside, the cottage was clean, cosy and toasty warm when the wood burner was lit (electric fires provide heat for the rest of the rooms). The kitchen has every appliance and utensil you would ever need. The cottage is just yards from the ferry but as it's on the end of a track no-one passes by, so you get the feeling of isolaton without being totally isolated.
The island itself is quite small and we covered every inch of road passable by normal car. Despite it's size there are numerous lovely walks allowing you to take in the history of the island (details of walks are provided in the cottage). On the subject of the island's history I would recommend reading the book Calum's Road (signed copies are available from the local, commumity owned, shop) before you venture out, as it will give more meaning to some of the walks, especially those around the north of the island.
Sandra, the owner, was extremely helpful and accesible and the whole booking/arriving process was painless and straighforward.
I would just like to reiterate what a wonderful place this is, not just the cottage itself but the whole island, and it is certainly a place I will never forget and can't wait to return back to.
The beautiful island of Raasay is separated from the Isle of Skye by the Sound of raasay. A twenty minute ferry takes you from Sconser directly to the island and a two minute walk takes you to the holiday property. The island is truly a get away from it all experience. Calm and peaceful without the throngs of tourists that other parts of the west coast of Scotland experience. Take a walk up Dun Caan, or marvel at the deservedly famous Callum's Road or just simply sit and relax watching the otters and dolphins at play.
