About us


Bertie & Jana welcome you to our guesthouse on the Isle of Skye.

Hillstone Lodge is a relaxing place to live and we want our guests to feel at home.


The house was designed by the award winning architects Rural Design in Dunvegan and built by Donald MacKenzie, also of Dunvegan. The location was carefully chosen to benefit as much as possible from the wonderful views of Loch Dunvegan and its magnificent surrounding landscape.


The house takes full advantage of a range of natural, local materials. These include timber, natural stone and slate reflecting local heritage and building traditions. Low energy construction techniques were adopted utilising Scottish timber, effective insulation and the use of passive solar gain. It was built to meet 'green' building standards and to achieve a very low environmental footprint.


Bertie has worked in the hotel industry for most of his life having spent time in Germany and England before coming to love Scotland and making it home. He has lived and worked in some of the most stunning places in Scotland, including St.Andrews, the Isle of Islay and most recently spent seven years as the Deputy General Manager of the five star Glencoe House Hotel before moving to the Isle of Skye to run Hillstone Lodge. 

Jana also has a background in the hotel industry, having also spent five years working at Glencoe House, most recently as the supervisor of their housekeeping team. Jana has a passion for baking and takes great pleasure in making a number of home baked treats for our guests to enjoy, as well as her own homemade Sourdough that features on our Breakfast menu. 


After holidaying together on the Isle of Skye several times, we decided it was the perfect location to make our home and fulfil the dream of running our own hospitality venue.


We are sure you will enjoy the warm atmosphere of our modern Scottish guesthouse on the Isle of Skye, as well as the comfortable furnishings and, perhaps most of all, the ever changing, stunning view. Our aim is for our guests to enjoy their stay with us and feel at home at Hillstone Lodge.
