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.
Had a wonderful time at the cottage, sat outside as much as possible with coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening just enjoying the views, watching the pheasants and myriad of other birds and enjoying the absolute peace and quiet. Wood burner a joy in the evenings too and everything about the cottage was very well equipped, comfy and cosy to a high standard. Loved the upstairs bathroom too and Sheena could not have been more helpful checking in via message on our arrival and more.
We had the most wonderful stay with you again and to cap it all we had bright sunshine until the last morning when you managed to arrange it for us to have a dusting of snow. Your attention to detail cannot be surpassed!
Thank you and we hope to be back again soon.
Everything was wonderful an amazing cottage in an amazing quiet area where we needed exactly. Mrs. Sheena & Mr. Richard were kindly helpful. Everything we needed was available.
We only wish the network would be better in the area
This place is quite simply perfect. We had 8 adults and had so much room, the pictures don’t do it justice! The house is really stunning and so well designed. We never wanted to leave. The surrounding area is peaceful, remote and stunning, we walked so much our dogs were in heaven. The house is well supplied and we loved the free logs for the fire, other rentals charge a fortune, although the Aga makes the house incredibly toasty so we didn’t often need a fire. We cooked a full Christmas lunch in the kitchen and had everything we could possibly need. Absolutely outstanding in every way!.
