Boat to the Isle of Raasay from Sconser on the 28th of July

Hi all!

Me and my boyfriend are supposed to stay at a hotel on the isle of Raasay on the 28th of July. Unfortunately we are landing in Edinburgh midday and won't make it to Sconser in time for the last ferry. We are wondering if there is an alternative way to get across to the Isle of Raasay on Sunday the 28th of July around 7 or 8 in the evening. We are willing to bribe local fisher men or boat owners with Whisky or a small amount of money. We are nice and friendly Swedes who would greatly appreciate any help or information you can give us.

Hi nice and friendly Swedes! There are a few boatmen who you might approach, but they will not be cheap, I fear :-( You could try www.skyeboat-trips.co.uk/index.php?idx=1 or boat-trips-charter-hire-skye.co.uk/index.sht…

Hi ... have you done the obvious thing and asked the people at Raasay House?

Hello!

I just wanted to say that we took your advice and charted a boat. We had an amazing trip and though the crossing was not cheap, it was so worth it. Thank you!

I'm so glad it all worked out in the end and that you had a wonderful trip

just as a matter of curiosity, how much did the boat charter cost
