Colin and Rosemary invite you to experience their truly traditional award winning B & B
Colin and Rosemary were born in the UK but their working life took them to some exotic and interesting places like Jamaica, Barbados, and Cyprus, and then finally to Sydney Australia.
In 1997 after a successful career in the retail industry around the world, they decided to move to Borwick Lodge Hawkshead in the English Lake District, a 16th century country residence, which they developed into a very successful bed and breakfast. They won many awards from the English Tourist Board for their outstanding food, service, and hospitality.
In 2002 they decided to return to Sydney to be near their family again and moved to Scotland Island on Pittwater.
Scotland Island Lodge opened later that year and has since become recognised for its great food, service, hospitality, and wonderful natural environment.
Experience wonderful fresh home made cooked breakfasts and romantic gourmet candlelit dinners.

"CHARMING HOSTS. GREAT FOOD. GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY. SENSE OF BEING IN A SPECIAL PLACE.'
SMH TRAVE SECTION review by Kate Cox
'Too often, the breakfast part of B&B's falls by the wayside, but Rosemary is passionate about cooking and her big English breakfasts are out of this world.'
'The Beds. Perfect for a deep sleep before being woken by the birds.'
There are many bush walks around the island and in the National Park. Spend the day exploring the wonderful flora and fauna in the area. Take the Elvina Bay walk to your own private rock pool where you can watch the spectacular birdlife whilst enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the area. Gaze over the Pittwater and over to the ocean beaches or walk the track from Lovett Bay to Salvation Creek. You can also explore the ancient Aboriginal site nearby and see their carvings in the rock. This is just one of many great walks in the area and we can advise you on walks to suit your needs.
Why not take out our two man kayak and explore the island from the water. If the weather is suitable paddle across to the National Park to picnic and maybe have a swim. It is like being on your own tropical island.
Take a ferry cruise or enjoy a Swim.
Go bush walking and explore the fantastic flora and fauna .
Visit local Aboriginal sites

Comments Hi Rosemary.
Just checking out your website. My wife and I stayed there over the weekend 5 years ago before we bought on the island. I will never forget the fantastic salmon dish you cooked us for dinner, we have yet to find a better dish at any restaurant and thats not an exaggeration.
Unlike many bed and breakfast places, you actually mean what you say. Keep up the good work. Your place still looks amazing.
