The inner Hebridean island of Raasay is situated between the Isle of Skye and the mainland, off the west coast of Scotland. The only way of getting to and from the island is by ferry.
The courses are held in the island’s community hall, and in the 17th century Raasay House that reopened in 2013 after being destroyed by fire a few years ago.
Raasay is one of the hidden gems of the Western Isles with stunning views over to the Isle of Skye. Both the course venues and most accommodation options on the island have direct views across the famous Cuillin mountains.
In addition to a week filled with music, there will be plenty of time to explore the island. You can discover the famous Calum’s Road at the north end of the island that was built by Calum McLeod himself, climb Dun Caan (the island’s highest peak), explore the forests and miners trails around Inverarish or visit Inver beach, on which the Royal family have had picnics in the past!
For the courses there are a range of accommodation options. These include Raasay House (special rates offered for accommodation for all courses), Allt Arrais and The Oyster Catcher Bed and Breakfasts and a range choice of holiday cottages. Please contact Sarah for a full list of accommodation .
