Feel like royalty with an affordable stay in an old, gorgeous Georgian mansion on the Isle of Raasay in Scotland. Raasay House is a beautiful clan house which dates as far back as the 1500’s when it was the home of the Macleods. The hotel is steeped in history with the first overnight guests staying for the first time in April 2013. Now you can join the history with this deal I found on travelbird.co.uk which includes a number fo great extras.
During your two nights here, you will enjoy a scrumptious Scottish breakfast each morning and receive a bottle of wine also. You can spend your day exploring the woodland or adventuring along the 14 miles of the island. If you have an adventurous streak in you, there are a number of activities you can get up to.
Just as it sounds, coasteering allows you to play along the coast, in swells gulches, waves and waters. These teamwork games make you navigate the coastline by jumping, swimming and climbing using ropes. You will spot loads of sea creatures who may want to play with you. The price for this is £37.
Lough kayaking is also available, pretty self explanatory, these lessons cater for all abilities at a price of £27. The island is perfect for rock climbing and you can climb the cliffs here with an instructor for £54 for a half day and £77 for a full day.
The exciting activity of gorge walking involves walking and climbing up rivers, negotiating waterfalls, finding caves and sliding down muddy slopes. This costs £37. Other activities include sailing, archery, crating, abseiling and a mini bus tour.
After a day of adventuring, you can relax in your comfortable room which boasts beautiful views of the sea.
The island is awash with brilliant things to see and do, so all that you have to do now is book it below….
