Annual BPF Scottish Gathering 2021

The courage to be
  • Becoming real
  • Becoming aware
  • Becoming creative

Monday-Friday, 26-30 July, 2021
Strathallan School, Forgandenny, Perth, PH1 9EG

Covid-19 permitting, we will be holding a Scottish Gathering in 2021, after this year's event was cancelled because of the virus. We are delighted to say that the theme and the speaker will be the same as we planned for 2020.

Our speaker will be Fr Jim Cogley who is Director of Pilgrimage at Our Lady's Island, Wexford, Eire. Fr Jim will illustrate his plenaries with his hand-carved sculptures in wood which he creates himself.

Along with three plenary sessions on the theme, we shall have the usual programme of all-important small groups, workshops and time for socialising and quiet reflection in the beautiful grounds of the school.

Do please consider joining us and note these dates in your diary now. Clearly all will depend on the course of the pandemic, but the Scottish Committee hopes very much that we will be able to welcome you to Strathallan next year.

The Brochure and Booking form will be available in due course on this page.


Strathallan School is an independent boarding and day school for boys and girls in Scotland's scenic Perthshire. The school has a 150-acre campus, which includes beautiful wooded grounds and a lake.

Sir Walter Scott is said to have described Perthshire as "the fairest portion" of Scotland. You are never far away from beautiful rivers, moors, mountains and lochs. Nearby visitor attractions include Scone Palace where Macbeth and Robert the Bruce were crowned and Loch Leven and its island where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned.
