Burnside Lodge is a two-room bed and breakfast located in the quiet village of Port Wemyss on the South Western tip of the Isle of Islay. While parts of the house are nearly as old as the village itself, the guest rooms in the newer part both have double aspect views of the Rhinns lighthouse designed and built by Robert Stevenson in 1825. The island of Orsay seen from the windows is the year-round home to the local population of common and grey seals, who can be heard singing across the water on calm days.

As well as welcoming bed and breakfast guests, Burnside Lodge is a hive of activity throughout the year, baking cakes for local cafes, supplying homemade pies to distilleries and locals. The quieter winter months find craft classes around the dining room table or furniture being up-cycled in the shed. A pop-up café or cake cupboard usually appears during the summer months with afternoon teas served in the lounge. Evening meals can be booked in advance, along with packed lunches for a days’ exploring. As a civil wedding venue Burnside Lodge can also host a tiny wedding or elopement for couples looking to escape.
