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 :)

- I was sleeping in the girls dormitory (pros: personal bathroom, cons: lack of privacy).
- Autumn no activities = no kayaking, no jumping cliff. We have access to bikes that are in poor condition (it takes 45 minutes to 1 hour and a half of cycling to get to the most beautiful hikes)
- No meal at lunchtime on Sunday, but you still have to work. Lunch = pasta that tastes sweet which is very strange, tuna, chickpea and nachos. Breakfast= bread, peanut butter and nutella (nothing else)
-Work = dishwasher, handyman or housekeeping (nothing else) (volunteer works harder than the staff)

The work was very easy and the team was incredible! Everyone helped me and showed me around. The hours and the work are more than fair however it was a bit confusing in the beginning because the place is big and there was a lot of staff walking around. Other than that the island is lovely and Freyah was very helpful everytime I needed something from her. Look out for the summer time, we stay in tents and it is a cold weather in Scotland nevertheless if that is ok for you I know you are going to have a great experience! I deffenitely recommend it

About the host

Experience life on a beautiful and unspoilt Scottish island. The isle of Raasay is quiet, tranquil and surrounded by stunning scenery. You can enjoy wildlife, outdoor activities and being part of a friendly local community. We are currently looking for volunteers! We are located on a beautiful small island right next to the Isle of Skye! (25 min. ferry) What do we ask you? All we ask is 5 hours work a day (6 days a week). You wi...
