The Burn - space for study

If you are looking for a well-equipped group venue where you can hold a conference, workshop or simply escape from the day-to-day demands and distractions of academic life, you might wish to consider The Burn.

The University of Glasgow has access to facilities for reading and study groups that wish to get time off campus and these are located at The Burn, a large, country house situated at Edzell near Brechin in Angus.  The Burn is owned and operated by Goodenough College in London, as a not-for-profit centre for international postgraduate students. The Burn operates as a holiday and study centre for students, graduates and academic staff from around the world. The Burn Management Committee includes representatives from all the Scottish universities including the University of Glasgow.

Currently there are discounted rates available for March. See flyer.

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 eighteen bedrooms.  It is centrally heated throughout.  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.
