It was an exciting day for us here at Raasay House Hotel & Activities. Alister the man in charge of the rebuild project at Raasay House gave a guided tour of the site. It was an emotional experience to see the progress of the project and start to picture how the rooms will all look when it's finished. As a fairly new (under 3 years) member of staff it was very exciting for me to finally get to walk around the house with Lyn and Freya pointing out the different rooms giving me more of a sense of how amazing it is going to be when it's finished. We even got to look around the roof which is almost finished and the lead and slate work up there is really quite artful.
The boys hard at work on a very muggy day-It was very hot up there!

Would you believe that this is only some of the chimney pots? I actually couldn't fit them all in shot!
A cool old stove which could use some TLC
More lovely roof work
..and again :)
It really was fantastic to see this amazing building being restored to it's former glory. I'll be grabbing pics when ever I can and keeping you updated on the great progress that Mansell and their subcontractors are making. Watch this space!!
