The Old Boathouse on the ground floor, first used by Gilbert McKinnon to build boats, is now a light and spacious twin room with en-suite shower room.  Please note although on the ground floor there are steps down into the room.

The Old Boathouse​

Things changed as a result of lockdown, and we have now settled into a new type of service here at Burnside Lodge.  Self-Check-in still operates giving guests a more flexible window for arrival.  We do not enter bedrooms while guests are in residence to keep a little distance from any possible infections which may pass either from us or our guests.  We mostly offer 3- and 4-night breaks with arrivals and departures on Monday's and Friday's. 

The Trophy Room

The Trophy Room on the first floor, the newest part of the property (built as a private sitting room by the previous owners), is now a double room with en-suite bathroom. Both rooms have double aspect views of the lighthouse


Tea and coffee making facilities are available in both rooms, as well as in the guest lounge, along with fresh milk and homemade biscuits. We have also recently installed a fridge for guest use.  Towels, bathrobes and toiletries are also provided free of charge. Free Wifi is available throughout the property although we ask you to take into account that the thick walls and our remote location does affect speed and availability.  None of the guest areas at Burnside Lodge have televisions as we have found our guests prefer the view.  Please note:  Maximum occupancy of either room is now 2, this includes children of any age, as specified in our Short Term Let Licence.  We don't allow dogs (even our own) inside the property due to allergies. There are a number of steps up to, and within the property please contact us if you need further information on accessibility.  Please click on the Book Now button for cancellation conditions and note the travel information on the next page - island life is sometimes disrupted by the weather or ferry breakdown, so we advise you to take out suitable travel insurance, just in case.
