Donate & Support the Burn

Since 1950 The Burn has been run as a charitable institution to support students from all backgrounds by providing a homely retreat in the heart of Scotland that fosters academic study and enhances the student experience. The Burn has served in this capacity for over 65 years thanks to the generosity of the Russell family and the strong support of the many guests and friends who have enjoyed their time in this very special place.

Recent refurbishment work has created a very comfortable and much improved facility.  Further work is now being undertaken to upgrade both guest and service areas and our goal is to make The Burn the first choice academic retreat in Scotland.  The current development plan is looking to increase Wi-Fi coverage and extend its range to cover the entire mansion house. The development of The Burn to afford the very best accommodation and learning environment continues to be our main focus.

We envisage great things for The Burn and if you enjoyed your time here as a student, you may consider yourself an ‘alumnus/a’ of The Burn and we would be extremely grateful if you were to consider a donation of any amount to allow future students to have a stay as enjoyable as yours.
