Lovely weekend

Saturday, 22 November 2014 by

Lots of lovely guests this weekend enjoying a yoga course here at Raasay House. Here are a few snaps of random bits and bobs. With groups the size of this one we generally provide meals in our ‘Big Dining Room’. At times this room can be full of school children on residential activity breaks, but this weekend

I went on absolutely lovely walk yesterday and I thought I would map it out for those of you who are looking for a new route that combines some of the main forestry routes.   The main points are: Start – Inverarish Mine Buildings & Waterfall SYHA Hostel Shortcut from the top road to Oskaig Oskaig Raasay House
