No. 39 Inverarish Terrace sits in the heart of the tiny village of Inverarish, on the small tranquil Inner Hebridean Island of Raasay. Lying just off the east coast of the Isle of Skye, it is from here that you will journey by ferry to one of the most beautiful and unspoilt places in the Scottish Islands and Highlands. As you sail, you can enjoy spectacular views of Skye’s Cuillin Mountains, Loch Sligachan, Braes and the Isle of Raasay itself.
This charming terrace cottage has been tastefully refurbished, combining cosy traditional warmth with modern comfort. The spacious living room has a generous multi-fuel stove and you will arrive to a welcome basket of logs, with further logs available to purchase at the local shop. The natural wooden floors and decorative finishing touches throughout provide a cosy home for home feel.
From the warm comfort of the lounge you can access the bright, sunny kitchen, with ample facilities for both cooking and dining. From here, there are double patio doors leading out to the back garden and decking area, where there is comfortable seating and an alfresco dinning space.
Stairs ascend from the lounge to the two double bedrooms and the bathroom. The master bedroom has views overlooking the garden and open fields to the back of the cottage. The second bedroom is bright and sunny with views to the front, across the Sound of Raasay to Skye’s Cuillins.
The bathroom has w/c, wash hand basin, and bath with electric shower over. Above the landing, at the top of the stairs there is a traditional over stair clothes pulley, perfect for indoor drying on rainy days.
However you like to relax this traditional terraced cottage is the perfect retreat, come rain or shine. Enjoy quiet reading time by the warmth of the stove, or hike to the summit of Dun Caan, Raasay’s highest peak. There are many enjoyable walks on the island, and there is an abundance of wildlife to be observed, from rare orchids to golden eagles. There are also red deer, from which Raasay gets its name (The Norse name Raasay means Isle of the Red Deer), as well as otters, basking sharks, whales and dolphins.
Inverarish has a well stocked village shop, and the local hotel serving food and drinks is just a 15 walk away. Please note that there is no fuel station on Raasay. Further information about Raasay can be found at www.raasay.com
