Description from owner

Description

The Manse is a lovely, elegant, comfortable and well-equipped family home. Set in its own large grounds and with fabulous views across to the Cuillins on Skye, it is the perfect base from which to explore the island of Raasay and beyond. Whatever the time of year, Raasay has great beaches, walks and cycle routes, breathtaking scenery and stunning wildlife.

The house has its own all-weather tennis court, well-equipped games room and huge treehouse, ideal for children of all ages. Or, if you want a more leisurely experience, you can enjoy the views from a comfy sofa by an open fire.

Further details outdoors

There is a separate games room with log burning stove, table tennis and bar area. The tennis court is an all weather one. There is also a large garden with a tree-house, parking for several cars and a private drive. New for 2012 is a top of the range gas BBQ.

The Scotland region

Visitors come to the Inner Hebrides to experience the unique combination of mountains, water, space and light. If you want to get away from the pressures of urban life, this is the place for you. Wide open spaces, breathtaking views, wonderful wildlife and very few people. The Cuillins on Skye are easily accessible from Raasay as are all the other attractions of Skye including castles, distilleries, fairy pools, potteries and boat trips. There is even a golf course within 5 minutes walk of the ferry terminal at Sconser.

There are several highly rated restaurants on Skye which are well worth a visit, including the Michelin-starred Kinloch Lodge and The Three Chimneys. The Stein Inn and Loch Bay Seafood Restaurant in the north west of Skye are our particular favourites.

Isle of Raasay

Raasay is one of the most beautiful islands in the Inner Hebrides. Tucked between the Isle of Skye to the west and the Scottish mainland to the east, it is just 14 miles long and 4 miles wide.

The perfect destination for families with children of all ages. While many visitors choose to scale Dun Caan, the distinctive flat topped mountain where Dr Johnson and Boswell are reputed to have danced, there are inland and coastal walks to suit all tastes, forests and beaches to explore, historic sites to discover and a richness of geology, landscape, flora and fauna rarely found in the British Isles.

It is easy to cross to Skye on the ferry to climb the Cuillin ridge or stay on the island and go fishing, mountain biking or walking. The nearby Raasay House Hotel and Activities Centre offers a wide range of day activities including climbing, abseiling, kayaking, coasteering and mountain bike hire. Its licensed bar and restaurant is only a ten minute walk from the Manse.

There is a well-stocked and friendly shop and post office in the village which sells local meat and vegetables and the nearest Coop supermarkets are at Broadford or Portree on Skye.
