This cottage is in a very remote position, and very high for a dwelling in the Western Isles, quite possibly the highest. The sunroom faces West and offers an astonishing panorama of the Sound, Skye from the Cuillin mountains to the tip of Trotternich, and the ever-changing sky. It is a traditional croft cottage, with many original features. You can walk directly from it both up Dun Caan and down to the beautiful Inver beach. "Utter, utter bliss." Please take a look at the reviews.

Love love love this cottage, the location, the view, the serenity. Great walks around Raasay and devastatingly scenic. Thoroughly recommend!

A cosy comfortable cottage with spectacular views across to Skye. Very quiet and tranquil. Virtually no traffic on the nearby road. Raasay is a lovely island with good walks. Dun Caan is accessible from the cottage and is a very worthwhile walk with stunning views from the sum…

Thanks for your kind review, and thanks also for your private message - we thought we had the mice sorted but grateful for advice that we have not won that battle yet. Also chairs and cooker, which are on our list. Toby

Toby and Oliver’s cottage has one of the best views to the Atlantic, snowy mountains, loch and pasture you could ask for and all from the back room. We had the most relaxing and magical time and mostly due to the ease of everything. All amenities work perfectly and lots of heater…

Beautiful view, responsive host, a well-appointed house, though with some older appliances. Nice wood-burning stove

This lovely house is in an outstanding location. What.a.view. It’s not fancy and doesn’t have all mod-cons but we could not have loved it more. The walks on Raasay to Dun Caan, Hallaig and Inver beach were fantastic. We saw Sea Eagles and Stags. We went Sea Kayaking with seals. T…

Oliver’s place is the perfect location for exploring the island. Things we loved - The quirky cottage, the location - we walked Dun cann directly from the cottage. We also cycled to the far end of the island. And also down into the small town. We had two lovely highland cows as…

Hi I'm Toby, Oliver Buxton's dad, and I have taken over the hosting from Olly because he's got a lot on his plate. I live in Oxford, sort of semi-retired. I have been visiting the cottage since 1988, when my parents (!) acquired it. We only started offering it for rent last year…
