Beautifully appointed cottage, a proper home from home with a lovely breakfast bar where you can sit and watch the garden birds and the wildlife. A lovely outside space to sit and enjoy.
The beach is over the road with stunning views and beautiful golden white sands.
Very much looking forward to returning next year for another wonderful holiday.
The best thing about this property has to be the location - there's no sea view however there are stunning beaches a 5 minute walk away down a narrow path cut out through ferns and sand dunes. The film Local Hero was shot on this beach.
It's also a great location in terms of island hopping as Mallaig, the main port, is only 5 miles away.
The house is a good standard with loads of parking, set in a huge open court yard and good private outdoor space.
The living area is well furnished, the bedrooms are small but then your in a cottage. My favourite feature has to be the window sills, they're all huge due to the nature of the building.
There's a welcome pack containing bread, milk, tea and biscuits.
I've not scored this as excellent due to no dishwasher, poor lighting in the bathroom and a very cold floor.
We were more than familiar the location which is why we initially picked the cottage. The cottage itself is fitted out to a very high standard and we were short of nothing.
Raasay cottage is situated just a couple of miles outside of the small port of Mallaig and a succession of beautiful and isolated beaches is just a short walk away. The beaches allow superb views of the island of Muck, Eigg and Rhum and the sunsets have to be seen to be believed (weather permitting). The cottage itself was immaculately presented, clean, and had every facility that could reasonably be expected, including a quiet and secluded outdoor table and seating area,and excellent wi-fi. Locally available are boat trips to the islands - highly recommended - and everything you need can be bought in Mallaig. We bought fresh fish from the harbour and the taste was out of this world, and not expensive. We had a great time, and would thoroughly recommend Raasay Cottage.
We had a wonderful holiday at Raasay Cottage. A perfect home from home with easy access to the beach over the road. Perfect for evening and morning walks. The cottage is well laid out and beautiful presented. Equipped to cater for every need with a lovely outside area. We loved listening to the birds in the evening sunshine with a drink.
The cottage it beautifully decorated to a high standard and the furniture is tasteful and comfortable.
We are definitely planning on returning here!!
