Raasay - UK, Scotland

Raasay is a tiny Inner Hebridean Island which is only 14 miles long. Lying between Skye and the mainland, it is separated by the Sound of Raasay from the mainland and the Sound of Rona separates it from Skye. It's a lovely, quiet island. Raasay's highest point – the flat-topped and distinctive Dun Caan offers a wonderful panorama. Sights include the ruins of Brochel Castle and Raasay House, but scattered about this tiny island are Brochs, Pictish stones, subterranean dwellings believed to be over 200 years old, and a 13th century church. Inverarish is the main village part of which was used as a prisoner of war camp for the Germans during World War I.
