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.

Many happy memories of fun times. Happy birthday David, greetings from sunny Cumbria.💂🍷🍷🍷

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.

Like most event venues, the doors are still closed to Burn House and not a creature is stirring, not even a mouse. This has been a difficult year for us all and we wish all our friends and followers a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR. Our guest book serves to remind us of times past and our many wonderful Christmas celebrations. Let’s hope that 2021 brings us back together again. ... See MoreSee Less

Hidden Treasures @ THE BURN. More gardening has unearthed a 1909 King Edward VII halfpenny and a 1939 King George VI penny. Sadly, both coins are in very poor condition and of little financial value. However, the finds allow us to reflect on the periods when the coins were struck.

In 1909 a ha’penny would have bought a half-pint of beer and perhaps the coin in question fell from the pocket of one of the 50 gardeners and foresters employed by Colonel Charles McInroy, Laird of The Burn until 1921.

The 1939 penny reminds us of a time when Britain went to war and the Russell family moved out of Burn House so it could be used as a hospital.

I found similar coins in the scraping from a rabbit burrow a little further upstream from the Burn House at the old cadet huts I am renovating with the Hedzup charity.
