It was wonderful to be able to return to the Burn in Edzell for our annual geography/science fieldtrip. We haven't been able to go for a couple years so it was great to be able to take the children once again. Despite the rainy conditions all day on Monday, our spirits were not dampened and we carried out lots of great fieldwork. The children really enjoyed laying their insect traps in the morning and then we headed off to the rugged coastline at St Cyrus bay to carry out some work on the sand dunes. A mega game of manhunt after supper managed to tire everyone out! On Tuesday we really enjoyed discovering the wee beasties in our insect traps, (and then releasing them), and after lunch we went to explore the sea defences at Montrose. All in all, another great trip which was enjoyed by all. We thank the Burn for their wonderful hospitality once again and we can't wait to return next year. The Burn Scotland ... See MoreSee Less

April was a very dry month and, as much as we love the sun, we really need more rain. River levels have dropped significantly but still the salmon run! Here is a wonderful short video of salmon at The Burn as they pause at the loups. ... See MoreSee Less

It’s been too long since our last post and the wonderful weather was an opportunity not to be missed.Whilst tree clearance and storm damage repairs continue to drive the agenda, we are also doing all we can to bring The Burn garden back to its best. The photos below are of Courtyard House - the 18th Century stable block - now a six bedroom holiday let property. In front of Courtyard House is a wonderful herbaceous border which has been weeded, trimmed and top-dressed to promote growth and encourage a magnificent floral display during the summer months.We are now making real progress and hope you enjoy the view. ...

Is the blue door walk open? Hope things are going well with the storm clearing.

Looking wonderful David...such very fond memories of past visits and so can't wait to return again one day.

The Burn is in good hands!
