Dunlane Study Weekend

On Saturday and Sunday (22/23 September 2007) the annual Scottish Esperanto Study Weekend took place at Scottish Churches House, Dunblane.

For the first occasion the event was held in Leighton House, an annexe of the main building, which enabled a flexible programme and an intimate atmosphere.

Hugh Reid, the Director of the Weekend, wished to encourage creative writing; so this activity was pursued in parallel with the lecture programme. This development worked well; so it will probably become a part of future Study Weekends.

There was also a short excursion to the Scottish Antiques Centre and Doune Castle. The Antiques Centre is a veritable treasure trove, and the castle (Mary, Queen of Scots stayed there!) deserves to be better known.

Here is a link to a few picture of this pleasant and stimulating Weekend.
