Freemasons have been a part of the Isle of Skye and Portree in particular since 1784 when the first St. Kilda Lodge was formed but sadly the lodge ceased operations in or around 1848.
Since Lodge St. Kilda was re-formed in 1898 the Lodge has grown and advanced itself from its early beginnings to what we have today: a vibrant and forward thinking group of like minded people who are constantly concerned with the plight and concerns of others within the local community.
Since 1898 we have built our own building which will celebrate its centenary in 2012 and is a centre piece of Somerled Square in Portree. The lodge has been through many challenges throughout the years including three wars and seen many changes including the advent of the motor car and latterly the opening of the Skye bridge which has enhanced our attendances.
Throughout the years, the Brethren of the lodge have always made it their concern to help and contribute towards good causes mainly within the Skye and Lochalsh area and many thousands of pounds have been raised by the brethren of the lodge for these good causes. This is even more relevant today as it was in days gone by.
Lodge St. Kilda today is a happy place for us to meet and enjoy ourselves and to continue to help the community as it has always been. We enjoy our company and the company of our visitors to whom we always give a big Highland welcome whenever they visit.
