Curlews Nest is an idyllic island retreat on the tranquil Isle of Raasay, a 25 minute ferry journey off of the east coast of the Isle of Skye. Curlews Nest is a traditional crofters style cottage, fully refurbished to modern standards.

The cottage is well located immediately outside of Raasay's main village of Inverarish, and around 1 mile from the island's CalMac ferry terminal.

The cottage sleeps 4 guests between one main bedroom with a king size bed and one twin room with 2 single beds.

The space
Curlews Nest is a traditional end of terrace crofters style cottage which has been fully refurbished to modern standards.

On the ground floor the cottage includes a modern fully equipped kitchen with new appliances and washing machine. There is a cosy lounge with a Freeview TV, DVD player and wood burning stove set in a traditional stone fireplace. Off of the lounge there is a bathroom with an over bath electrical shower.

Upstairs are two bedrooms, the main bedroom with a king size bed and one twin bedroom with 2 single beds. Both bedrooms feature Velux roof windows which keep them light and bright and offer views out to Churchton Bay and the Sound of Raasay. The bedrooms also include Joules and Laura Ashley bed linen, fluffy towels, soft feather pillows and luxury feather quilts.

As you might expect with this style of cottage, the bedrooms upstairs have steeply coombed ceilings and lower than average doors, so taller guests may have to mind their heads. The stair case is also fairly steep, worth bearing in mind with young children.

Outside, the cottage includes 1 off street parking space to the side. At the rear of the cottage is a grassed garden area that backs onto the local playground, with sea views over to the Isle of Skye beyond.

The cottage has free fibre WiFi throughout.

Curlews Nest is located immediately outside of the main village of Inverarish on the Hebridean Isle of Raasay. The island lies off of the east coast of the Isle of Skye, accessible by a regular 25 minute CalMac ferry service.

The cottage is just 2 minutes from the beach, and is well located to explore Raasay's amazing natural beauty. The village shop is a 2 minute walk from the cottage, Raasay Distillery is a 10 minute walk and local bar and restaurant at Raasay House is a 15 minute walk.

Whether you’re into walking, hiking, spectacular wildlife watching, photography, geology, adventure sports or just a peaceful break away from it all, Raasay really is the perfect place to spend time.
