Spent a month here and the staff and other volunteers truly created a sense of community and easy friendship. The island is small but beautiful and everyone is happy to help you out or go for a little trek if the rain isn't too bad

I arrived at Raasay House in October and stayed until the beginning of December. The landscapes and views were absolutely beautiful but the weather was not very nice for outdoor activities. There's not much to do around, just to explore the island and its surroundings. The work hours and tasks are fair and easy so you will have quite a lot of spare time. This is the right spot if you're looking to disconnect from the real world and find some peace.

Raasay House es un hotel bastante concurrido por lo que siempre hay trabajo que hacer, los horarios de trabajo son rapidos y flexibles por lo que tendras mucho tiempo libre, yo viaje de octubre a diciembre y el clima fue bastante malo y con el cambio de horario te obscurece a las 4pm, la isla es hermosa y hay muchos lugares para salir a caminar, hacer kayak, y tambien podras ir a la isla de enfrente para visitar el pueblo pero el clima y los pocos horarios de ferris y camiones no ayudan mucho
Es una isla hermosa y pacifica aun en invierno pero creo que encontraras mas actividades en verano
