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.


SMH Weekends Away article on Scotland Island Lodge review by Steve Meacham


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

Culinary Delights

Scotland Island Lodge opened in 2002 and over the years it has become renowned for its excellent cuisine, hospitality, and service.

Breakfast is an occasion at the Lodge and a great way to start the day.

Too often, the breakfast part of a bed and breakfast falls by the wayside, but Rosemary and Colin are passionate about their cooking. Their big English breakfasts are out of this world, produced from the very best ingredients and prepared and cooked daily.

In the evening savour their delicious 3 course candle lit dinners.

Delicious meat, fish, and poultry dishes are accompanied by fresh seasonal vegetables, garden salads, and cooked to perfection by your hosts.

Mouth watering home made deserts, ice cream, coffee and chocolate completes a truly delightful evening.


Garlic marinated prawns with steamed asparagus and dill and chive mayonnaise

Grain fed fillet steak served with caramelised onions on sweet potato mash

Mixed vegetables au gratin and steamed green beans

Marinated strawberries with crispy meringue and fresh whipped cream

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely spot and hosts My elderly Mum and I were beautifully looked after during our 3-night stay. The hosts, Rosemary and Colin, are kind and flexible and the meals absolutely top-notch! The tame lorikeets on the back porch were a delightful touch. We also enjoyed the company of the lovely retired couple who were staying a couple of nights while we were there (meal times/spaces for breakfast and dinner are shared with other guests). My only caution is that the Lodge is a 5 minute walk up a steep hill from the wharf, which could pose a challenge for less sprightly guests. But there is a vehicle on the island which could be booked to assist if required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic stay at a Unique Location Scotland Island Lodge delivers what it promises. The location is unique and the lodge more than delivers on its promises. It is difficult to believe a place like this exists so close to the fast life of Sydney. The accommodation is extremely comfortable with great views. The food is wholesome and all the dinners are specially prepared and of a high standard. Extremely good value. The hospitality is outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was a wonderful place to bring the family to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. The hosts were very accomodating of our additional requests, had attended to all details and the food was very fresh and scrumptious. It is a lovely part of the world. We would certainly highly recommend the lodge.
