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.
This lovely house in a stunning setting provided the perfect venue for a fun stay with friends on the Barwhillanty Estate. Every detail had been thought of and the house is warm and cosy and very well equipped, with tasteful decor, excellent bathrooms and kitchen, and comfy beds! We had a most wonderful stay, and will definitely be back again to enjoy the house and those beautiful views.
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!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We had very clear directions and so it was easy to find in the late afternoon.
The house was warm, clean and comfortable. Thanks to the terrific mattresses and possibly a glass of wine we slept wonderfully well. The drying room is a great asset.
Overall we would heartily recommend staying here.
