At the beginning of the volunteer I thought "OMG, I won't like this experience", because this was my first worldpackers, I believe. After a couple of days I started to see how amazing is the Isle of Raasay and the staff people that I was working. It was a lovely experience in my life and I will never forget all these lovely moments! :) Thank you so much!

Raasay House experience is A+! Good staff and volunteer communication make it very easy to get along! Since the moment I got there everyone treated me very kindly! They have a vegetarian option! Visit the Isle of Raasay in your free time or hang around the place. If you plan to visit Isle of Skye you need to schedule for the ferry, so unless you get a car its going to make it hard to make it on time. Worked 4 hours a day, 6 days a week. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to be in a lovely place. Its really a unique island experience! Thank you everyone!

Mi experiencia en éste lugar ha sido sumamente enriquecedora. El anfitrión estuvo al cuidado de todo a cada instante. Las horas están bien organizadas y cumplen con lo especificado en el perfil. El lugar, es impresionante, a veces hay que cambiar de habitación pero fuera de eso es un hospedaje bastante cómodo. La mayoría del tiempo las actividades dependen del clima, pero cuándo hay oportunidad puedes hacer la mayoría de las actividades.
My experience in this places has been very enriching The host was caring about me every time. The schedule is well organized. The place is stunning. Perfect

Raasay House is beautiful and worth a visit for a week or two if you enjoy nature and being on a remote Island. The job is cleaning of either rooms or dishes and not difficult but not rewarding or worthwhile for more than two weeks. The staff are very nice and the activities were fun (when they were happening).

My stay here was awesome. There was a lot of friendly people from the staff that will teach you everything. The housekeeping and cleaning werent hard and if you do it with a nice group of people you can actualy enjoy it. :) Sleeping in tent is after first two or three days more that okay. You wll get used to it. On top of this all there is a plenty more things that you can do in your free time (fishing, hiking, costering, footbal, cycling......) This was a really nice experience for me :)
