Explore Raasay.com, The Isle of Raasay's Community Website, developed by
the RCA (Raasay Community Association).

Raasay is one of the Inner Hebridean Islands. To the East is the Scottish mainland and to the West is The Isle of Skye. The waters to the East of Raasay are known as The Inner Sound of Raasay which occupy some of the deepest channels around Britain. The Caledonian MacBrayne ferry, which is the main access route to the island, crosses the Sound of Raasay to The Isle of Skye. A narrow channel known as The Kyle of Rona separates the North of Raasay from the Isle of South Rona.

The Norse name "Raasay" means Isle of the (Roe) or Red Deer. Dun CaanPerhaps the island's most distinct geological feature is the unique flat-topped peak known as Dun Caan. A walk from the pier at Suisnish to Dun Caan (the highest point 1456 feet) and return can be achieved in a day with time to spare to catch the last ferry back to Skye.

Inverarish is the main village part of which was used as a prisoner of war camp for the Germans during World War I. The Local Store and Post Office are also within the village and the Primary School is nearby.

However you decide to spend your time on Raasay we all welcome you...
