Cosy cottage in a secret valley on a quiet island, where you can listen to your 'inner sound'. Ideally situated in the centre of Raasay, with good access to all parts of the island. Raasay is a very beautiful island and also has dramatic views of Skye and the mainland.
Love being close to raw nature in remote wilderness? Then come to 'Inner Sound' cottage, where you can unwind, relax and enjoy the silence and serenity of the secret valley of Balachuirn on the Isle of Raasay. We are ideally situated in the centre of Raasay, with good access to all parts of the island. Raasay is a very beautiful isle and also has awesome views of Skye and the mainland.
Visit the dramatic Calum's road, the haunting ruins of Brochel Castle, the deserted and heartbreakingly sad clearance villages, tranquil Inver Beach, and the stunning whisky distillery! Catch the low tide so you can walk to the Isle of Fladda! Climb the extinct volcano, Dun Caan! Say hello to the friendly seals at Holoman Island, be amazed at the circling birds of prey soaring overhead, and watch the deer gently descend with grace and dignity onto the field opposite the cottage at dusk! If you are lucky, you might also see dolphins, porpoises, whales and sea-otters in the surrounding seas - or be surprised at the Northern Lights of the Aurora Borealis at night (the dark night sky is always amazing in clear weather)! The island is great for self-organised activities such as cycling, walking, sailing, kayaking, bird-watching, geology, astronomy, photography, and fishing (please bring your own equipment for such self-organised activities) - and there are a host of organised activities available at Raasay House hotel - kayaking, coasteering, sailing, rock-climbing, gorge walking, abseiling, archery, crating and tours (these are run by the hotel, not the cottage, so you need to pay and book separately for organised activities at https://www.raasay-house.co.uk ). Raasay House hotel offers cycle hire, a restaurant, bistro, bar - and amazing views across the bay to the Cuillin mountains. At Inverarish village, there is a shop and post office, while at nearby Clachan, you will find a distillery and gift shop.
