Football Pitch & Swing Park
Situated side by side in Inverarish village, this is the perfect place to spend time with your little ones and not so little ones!
Raasay has an abundance of wildlife including otters, seals, red deer, golden eagles and sea eagles. We even have our very own species of vole, the appropriately-named and tiny Raasay Vole. Take a pair of binoculars with you on a trip to Holoman Island to see the seal colony. Keep your eyes to the skies around Hallaig and you are very likely to see a few sea eagles.
