Step by step guide on how to book Gowanbank

If you’re interested in bringing your group to Gowanbank, you just need to get in touch to chat through some of the detail.

Here’s how to book Gowanbank. Have a think about what you want your group to get out of their residential and when you may want to come. Once you have an idea of when and what you would like the emphasis to be, we can help you make a booking and get a detailed plan in place for your event.

It’s your visit, and we’re there to help make sure you get the most from the centre and your time with us. We can do more or less of the planning, depending on what will help you.

We want you to have a great experience. Maybe you want to incorporate some outdoor activities, particularly if one of your aims is to get your group to know one another better. Perhaps it’s more about a retreat, a houseparty, time out or training, in which case we’ll melt in to the background, but always be on hand to help if required.

In the event of cancellation by a group, the deposits paid are non-refundable. Where the cancellation occurs within twelve weeks of the event, groups will be liable for the full fee unless the vacancy can be filled by another group. If the event has to be cancelled by the centre for any reason and another mutually agreed date cannot be organised, any payment made will be refunded. More details will be available on the booking form.
If you have to cancel your event as a direct result of Scottish Government restrictions related to Coronavirus, a refund of any balance paid will be made. Cancellation must be made in writing in advance of your arrival date. If you cancel for any other reason our normal cancellation terms apply.
