Available for hire, our versatile 36 sq metre studio/workshop has been created within part of a former mill. Sited immediately opposite our three self catering cottages and attached to our own house, the workshop overlooks adjacent fields to provide uninterrupted views of the stunning countryside here in the Southern Scotland.

Drawing inspiration from the contrast between the rugged stone walls, trees, flowers and natural beauty of the surroundings, numerous visual artists who have used the studio while staying at Burnbrae have been able to tap into the relaxing surroundings and charming vistas to be creative.

The studio is available for hire by day, evening or part thereof and may be hired for your respite; for your private project; or simply as a resource for you to utilize at your heart’s and mind’s desire.

Some of our creative friends have stayed in the cottages and used the workshop to develop their own projects without the disturbances of being at home or indeed the “big wide world”! Previous visitors have enjoyed the simplicity of the light and airy studio, together with the peace and quiet of the surroundings as inspiration for their creative fabric tutorials; for peaceful knitting groups; and even for an uninterrupted series of business meetings, team-building exercises and brain-storming sessions.
