Welcome

You are truly welcome at The Burn, a unique establishment situated in the Highlands of Scotland. For those who don't know "Burn" is the Scottish word for stream, which flows through the grounds.

It was gifted in 1948 to Goodenough College by the late Mr & Mrs Herbert Russell in memory of their son James, who was killed in action in 1944 aged 21. The Burn is a holiday and study centre for students, graduates and academic staff from around the world.

The house, built in 1791 and now completely modernised, consists of a large drawing room, dining room, library, TV room, indoor games room and has 18 bedrooms and 1 flat. It is centrally heated throughout and during your stay you can look forward to quality cooking with the best home grown ingredients - Chef's Corner.

Standing in 190 acres of park and woodland on the banks of the River North Esk, The Burn affords peace and relaxation for holidays and study in excellent accommodation at low cost, subsidised by the generous Russell legacy.
