Barwhillanty Blog… a happy New Year
Happy New Year… resolutions at the ready! Healthy, wholesome outdoor living is what Barwhillanty is about… and we are waiting to welcome you. Holiday, mini-break or weekend escape, the Scottish countryside is calling.
Never short of an adventure here… for after the rain comes snow. We have had so much rain, fortunately unaffected by local flooding, leaving copious muddy paths and fields to embrace with wellies and waterproofs. A muddy run turns out to be quite hard work too (even more so when pregnant!). January does not have to be dull – the crisp, country air is a great medicine and there is nothing better than coming home to a roaring fire after a burst of chilly activity. Especially now it seems the sledging season has descended upon Dumfries and Galloway… and hills we have plenty!
I am excited to announce that the Barwhillanty Estate Facebook page has been launched this week, so you can follow our progress with pictures and postings… and start planning your visit. Also, rather excitingly, our smart, new signage is being put up around the estate, displayed on Barwhillanty’s own oak, crafted and mounted by Donald, our handyman and Gordon, our forester.
Next week, our expectant ewes will be facing their scans, to find out how many lambs we are due… follow us on Facebook for a glimpse of the action!
