Whisky, Fire & Song takes over Raasay this week-end for two days - and nights - of family fun.

The community event, tonight and tomorrow, (November 4 & 5 ) brings the community together for a fun filled week-end combing everything from whisky tasting to , architectural tours, architecture inspired cake building and torch lit processions.

Festivities start this evening with an opportunity for islanders and visitors alike to dust off their vocal cords and participate in a lively open mic night at Raasay House.

Tomorrow, to mark Scotland’s Year Of Innovation, Architecture & Design, the architects behind R&B Distillers’ Raasay distillery, ABIR architects, will be leading guests on architectural tours of Raasay.

This will be followed by an architectural-themed cake competition in which the creator of the most impressive baked structure will be win a voucher for lunch at Raasay house.

The highlight of the weekend will be a bonfire at the site of R&B Distillers’ Raasay Distillery followed by a torch lit procession across the island to the boathouse-turned- bar for hot food, whisky-drinking frivolities and live music to unfold.
