Academic retreats, holiday accommodation & group events

The Mansion house autumn

A unique blend of home comforts in the Scottish Highlands with both catered and self catered accommodation

Academic Retreats

The Burn offers the perfect antidote to the Covid induced lack of student experience. A stay with us brings students and academic staff together, boosts enthusiasm for their subject and benefits their education, as well as lifting their spirits.

Holiday Accommodation

We have self catered accommodation in our Courtyard House, which is adjacent to the Mansion House and can hold 12 guests, and in our lovely, cosy North and South Gate Lodges, both of which can hold 4 guests and are ideal for a family or small groups.

Group Events

Use us for conferences, away days, retreats and intimate wedding parties of 40 and under. Whether inside our elegant Mansion house or outside in the beautiful grounds, this is the perfect place for birthdays, anniversaries, reunions, and parties.

Our thanks go out to Carol Sanders for preparing the cottage and we look forward to opening the playhouse to visitors in 2022.

Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night.
