A HOTEL from the Isle of Raasay has been recognised for its unique visitor experience at the Scottish Hotel Awards after being open for just over a year.
Raasay Distillery won the Gold Laurel prize on 28th April at the event which took place at the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow.
The judges praised Raasay Distillery for “creating a unique visitor experience” and for the positive impact that the business has had on its small island community of only 160 residents.
All nominees across the awards were carefully researched over a twelve-month period and nomination alone is a recognition of the hard work and initiative of emerging hospitality businesses.
Borodale House, the Victorian-era villa incorporated within Raasay Distillery, was restored into a luxury whisky hotel, lounge and visitor centre which opened in January last year.
The distillery offers six en-suite bedrooms within the same building as the working distillery and a five-star visitor centre.
