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.

At last the rain has stopped and we can venture outside to enjoy the wonderful autumn colours of The Burn estate. The Burn beech trees provide a brilliant display and it is definitely the best time to visit the Gannochy Gorge. ... See MoreSee Less

The Burn is back as a wonderful and exclusive venue for gatherings of every kind. Today we are hosting a very special birthday lunch. It is a miserable day outside but here in Burn House it is warm and welcoming with a roaring open fire. ... See MoreSee Less
