It is with great sadness that The Burn pays its respects to His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. We honour a remarkable man who placed duty before self and was a figurehead for his generation. In due course, The Burn will mark Prince Philip’s extraordinary life and exceptional service to Queen and country with the planting of a memorial Oak tree but at this sorrowful time we mourn his loss and offer our deepest condolences. ...

A spectacular Snowdrop display to celebrate Mothers’ Day! We will have to wait a few weeks for the Daffodils to bloom but the Snowdrops are putting on a great show this year. Perhaps this is a sign of better things to come?

The Burn team wish everyone a HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY and send Spring greetings to one and all 🌷

Yesterday was my lockdown birthday and, like so many others, I spent a quiet day at home. However, I felt extremely lucky that my home is the wonderful event venue and rural retreat known as The Burn.

The Burn - currently a winter wonderland (see photos) - is a very special place indeed and as I marked the passing of another year, I was reminded and saddened by the many cancelled events that should have taken place in this spectacular and historic location.

Let’s hope that the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted very soon so that some of the postponed events can go ahead. Let’s also hope that the social distancing measures are relaxed so that The Burn can open its doors again and welcome guests back to Glenesk. We now have 3 holiday let properties and full details of what we offer can be found on our website at www.theburn.co.uk.

I do hope that this dreadful situation will be over in the near future. We were to attend the lovely wedding of our granddaughter at The Burn last year, it had been arranged for quite a while , we were so looking forward to it. Of course it was postponed for a while, and then no hope, so sad. Good luck for the future

Love the pictures.would love to see the inside..I’m sure it has changed a whole lot since I worked there.

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday 🥳

Hope to visit in the summer

Snow has arrived in Glenesk and the 18th Century Burn Courtyard looks splendid in its winter setting. The Courtyard dates from 1796 and was originally the stable yard. During the 1930s the sables were converted into accommodation and the carriage bays became garages for motor vehicles.

Today The Burn courtyard contains a large and well-appointed holiday let (Courtyard House) with room for 12 and a versatile function room (The Studio) which is a great space for yoga and art classes. For further information please check out The Burn website at www.theburn.co.uk.
