THE BURN House in Glenesk and Brechin Rotary Club welcomed students from South Africa earlier this month.

An elite group of hand-picked students from South Africa, sponsored by the Abe Bailey Trust, have been visiting places of historical and cultural importance during a three-week stay in the United Kingdom.

The culmination of their trip has been their four days residing at the Burn House in Glenesk under the supervision of the Burn House’s Bursar David Turner.

While there, the students were given a taste of Scottish culture including a visit to Forfar Ice Rink for an introduction to curling.

The task of passing on the finer points of the Roaring Game fell to Rotarians from Brechin, Forfar and Kirriemuir, with the students subsequently treating their hosts to a feast of impromptu musical entertainment.

A Rotary spokesman commented: “It was a wonderful event and our guests from South Africa were marvellous ambassadors for their country”.
