Rona Lodge – Isle of Rona


How do I get to Rona?   If you are staying on the island, you will be collected from Portree on Skye by a chartered boat.  Otherwise, there are day trips available through MV Stardust Boat Trips and Spindrift Boat Trips from Portree.  These are usually run once a week in high season.  Also, if you are staying at the Borodale House Hotel on Raasay, they offer day trips to Rona.


How do I get around Rona?   On foot!  But at least you will have virtually all of Rona to yourself!

What’s worth visiting on Rona?  If you are staying in one of the cottages for a week or more, you will have the island to yourself (if no-one else is staying).  Rona’s highest peak, Meall Acairseid, is 125m high.  It is worth climbing for the spectacular panoramic views.  Church cave is a natural cavern on the eastern side of Rona.  Even after a church was built on the island it was a tradition to have babies baptised in the cave
