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.


Colin and Rosemary invite you to experience the wonderful world of island living and the beauty and tranquillity of the Ku-ring-gai National Park.
