Booking open again

The booking form is open again – thank you for your patience. Current Status: The following tours are FULLY BOOKED

SUNDAY – Both Rosslyn Tour & the Traquair Lunch
THURSDAY – Traquair Lunch and Hadrian’s Wall visit

They will not appear on the booking form now. When booking re-opens you will have the option to select from the available tours and events. There are also plenty of places available for the Conference and the Friday/Saturday events as these will be in a much larger venue.

Wow – What a day!

Booking opened at noon UK time and by the end of the day we have over 200 people registered for the Centenary Gathering & Conference.

Due to the extraordinary numbers of people registering we have already filled all the spaces that we had on the following tours, so you will not have an option to book these on the form now.

SUNDAY – Both the Rosslyn tour & the Traquair Lunch
THURSDAY – Both the Traquair Lunch & the Hadrian’s Wall Visit

However there are still places on many of the events, so you will have plenty of choice.

Please let us know in the comment box on the final page of the form if there is a specific event that you would like to be added to a wait list for in case we have cancellations.

We will be in contact with all of you over the next few days to confirm your bookings and to send you instructions how to pay the deposit.   It may take a day or two to get to your booking, so please be patient with us as we have rather a lot of forms to deal with!

We are going to pause the booking system for a few hours as the team needs a break, but we will be back online tomorrow accepting bookings again.

Best wishes from the Centenary Gathering Team

Centenary Programme Published

The full programme of events  and prices are now available on this website.

The Centenary Conference and Gathering programme is an extensive menu from which you will have to choose – it is not possible to do everything! Take a look and think about which events you would like to attend.

Online booking will open soon – watch out for a notification via the Centenary email group.

The number of available spaces on some tours are limited on some of the tours, so if there are “must do” events then please try to book quickly.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Edinburgh in April 2023.

Coming Soon – The Centenary Gathering!

The Centenary Team has been working hard to prepare a veritable feast of delights for the gathering in 2023.

Over the next few weeks this website will start to change and we hope it will become your reference point for all the information that you need to plan your trip to Edinburgh in April 2023.


The DDS has updated its COVID-19 policy for the 2022 Event.  The official version can be found on the site and the latest version is shown below:

COVID-19 for the Dunnett Weekend 2022 (updated 28-Feb-2022)

Attendees at the Dunnett Weekend 2022 events must be fully vaccinated and boosted, and must bring such proof of vaccination as is accepted by their government.

We would also appreciate it if you could test yourselves just prior to attendance at events.  At the events themselves, we (and the venues we use) may require additional measures such as mask wearing and hand sanitisation and a degree of social distancing, and these may vary from venue to venue.  We will comply with regulations and advice from the Scottish Government.

If you have any concerns about any of this, please contact



We have closed the booking for 2022, including the waiting list.

The weekend team will be finalising the arrangements for the event over the next month and will be in touch with all those who have booked with further details.
