Barwhillanty Blog… a countryside Christmas
With Christmas cheer building up; cosy fires being lit and carols being sung, I thought I’d bring you an insight into Barwhillanty Estate’s countryside Christmas, amongst the rolling hills of Dumfries and Galloway.
Love has been in the air, as Oscar and I have just returned from our honeymoon in South America whilst the tups have been let loose, romancing the ewes. We seem to be rather in sync with the sheep; our baby being due in the middle of lambing season! So in the festively appropriate words: “love really is all around”.
Our delightful holiday cottage, Diamonds Laggan, has just been kitted out with a fancy new biomass heating system, ready for those cosy Christmas fires and ready to welcome you to indulge in the charming remoteness of our rural getaway location. We will soon be adding to our holiday cottage portfolio too, with the prospect of an exciting new build (watch this space…).
The team at Barwhillanty have been busy tidying up after some wild winds had taken some trees down. The weather always brings some excitement here, but also such gorgeous changes in colours, making our views and walks endlessly interesting. We have two new tenants recently settled into a couple of our residentially let cottages and are thrilled that the secrets of South West Scotland will be opening their doors to them.
So come and share some of these secrets of Scotland soon… there’s no “bah-humbug” at Barwhillanty for our countryside Christmas!
