Good news: when we cancelled the Dunnett Weekend this year, we said that we would refund, by end June at the latest, 50% or more of the money that our delegates paid. In fact, we are able to refund 100%, and by 15th April at the latest. These refunds will be cost-neutral to the Society.
This is thanks to the goodwill of all our speakers and guides, Hunters Coaches, the John MacIntyre Centre, the MacDonald Marine Hotel in North Berwick, and the Radisson Blu hotel in Edinburgh, who have waived fees and expenses, and refunded money already paid. The Weekend Team will be contacting people individually regarding refunds.
Registration for the Dunnett Weekend 2020 is now CLOSED.
If you would like to be added to a waiting list in case we have any cancellations please use the contact us option on the site menu.
All the available places on Sunday have been booked, but there are still places on the Friday and Saturday events.
If you are interested in coming on Sunday please tick the box on the booking form to add your name to the waiting list and if we have any cancellations we will contact you.
