Raasay House, Raasay

A frontal view of Raasay House, on the island of Raasay.

Dating back to 1751, Raasay house once belonged to Clan Macleod. Visited by James Boswell and Samuel Johnson during their tour of the Highlands in 1773, the mansion now functions as an outdoor centre.

Raasay House made nationwide headlines in January 2009, when a fire ripped through the premises during renovation work, causing major structural damage.
