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.
Pros - good location, large outdoor space, private
Cons - beds not high quality, protectors for mattresses/pillows not clean, house generally a bit shabby, very few dishwasher tablets/washing machine capsules provided for week's stay, no nice touches like shortbread/milk etc provided as with other holiday rentals, not luxury as was expecting from photos/price, slow communication for booking etc
