We offer academic retreats, holiday accommodation & group events.

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.

S6 leadership and university preparation retreat at The Burn Scotland πŸŒπŸ™ŒπŸ»

β€œβ€¦Know you can make a huge impact. First of all, with kindness, compassion and fairness. And as you set out in leadership and exploration as S6s, remember that is a good place to start. I wish you all the most incredible journey. Embrace the highs and the lows...”

Teamwork πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Our S6 pupils are currently on a three day team building retreat at The Burn Scotland. It’s the perfect opportunity to develop their skills and work together as they embark on their final year at Lathallan.

They’ve been raft building - working in teams to suss out the best way to plan, design and build their own raft, then take it on the water to test it.

Learning about knots, being resourceful, planning, construction, organisation, communication, confidence and trust!

The last week of the school term was a real whirlwind of emotion and pre-summer activities!

Over the coming days, we'll pepper your newsfeed with some of the highlights.

On Wednesday, our S6s enjoyed a retreat to The last for a farewell meal and overnight stay. It was a wonderful opportunity to give these Lathallians a memorable send-off.

A special thank you goes to Jennifer Broadley, Director at HealthyChat, for sharing life experience and words of guidance in an inspiring after-dinner talk.

S6s - cheers to your next steps beyond school, go confidently in the direction of your dreams! We'll miss you all.
