A family asset since 1884, Barwhillanty Estate, originally a sporting estate, has been nurtured with a commitment to conservation and a responsibility to land management. With a passion to protect our land and associated infrastructure, we invest sustainably, respecting our environment for future generations.
Instrumental to sustainable timber production, the late J.M.A.Yerburgh, father to Oscar Yerburgh, pioneered the journey into productive forestry in the 1950s. Today, forestry still forms the core of our sustainable business portfolio, alongside farming and our continuing diversification into experiences and events.
Introducing ourselves as the current custodians, we are Maria and Oscar Yerburgh. We live and breathe Barwhillanty Estate, with our three children; Acacia, Leander and Thalia.
We hope to inspire you here in the beautiful Galloway hills of South West Scotland.
We had a very pleasant stay at Blairinnie. There were 6 adults, 3 children (10, 9 & 7) and we all had a fabulous time. The weather was beautiful and we loved playing cricket in the courtyard! Fortunately we didn’t need to contact anyone during our stay but we knew that there was someone available should we need them. Only suggestion is that shorter cues be available for the children as they were unable to use the ones provided safely.
Our friends stayed at Stable House for our wedding in the walled gardens. They had a wonderful stay and were blown away with the comfortable accommodation in the beautiful surroundings. There was great information about the local area and all guests were delighted with the lovely big kitchen and living space to socialise in. All of the spaces were very clean and tidy and they felt very well looked after throughout. Would highly recommend to any visitors to the local area. Thank you!
