The aim of the project is to have a heritage centre for Raasay.

We're still collecting donations

On the 12th May 2021 we'd raised £1,607 with 20 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Raasay Heritage Trust is trying to complete development of a Heritage Centre for the Isle of Raasay.

Muileann Àrais will help to sustain and develop both the economy and cultural heritage of the remote and fragile island of Raasay by encouraging wider access to the collections, facilities and activities of Raasay Heritage Trust. It will encourage a wider range of visitors onto the island using the focus of a quality centre of excellence to orientate people to the assets of the island, encourage day trips and longer stays and increased visitor spend, resulting in real benefit for all in the community. It will also create a focus for local people to celebrate their heritage and for the many people (many of them descendants of the families who were cleared) who return to Raasay looking for their roots.
