Root yourself in the history of the Burn

24th July 2019 was the 75th anniversary of the death of James Russell, whose tragic loss in action prompted his family to gift The Burn to Goodenough College. His life was celebrated at The Burn by the planting of the first batch of 75 trees in his memory. Local, national, and international friends have already sponsored 53 trees. For full details of the ceremony and how you can still take part:

The Burn Scotland

At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month we stand in silence to remember and honour those who have fallen in conflict while doing their duty to protect our rights and freedom. On this national day of reflection, we particularly remember Lt James Russell who was killed in action during the Italian campaign of the Second World War.
