Barwhillanty Blog… autumnal edition with an addition!


Summer was in bloom and so was I, as we entered autumn with our family addition; our beautiful baby boy, Leander. Acacia has quickly become the sweetest big sister, first to his attention upon his cry and never missing her morning kiss! Now the haze of the early newborn days begins to subside, I am taking advantage of a moment’s peace to deliver to you our autumnal piece, here at action packed Barwhillanty…

We survived the edge of the storm, keeping our fingers and toes crossed for the forestry and for not too many a frightened pheasant. The shooting season is now well underway and our gamekeeper, David, has been working tirelessly to keep our pheasants and our shooting guests happy… and happy they have been! We are thrilled to welcome Michelle on board, our creative cook, to cater for many a hungry mouth. Game has been the name of the game, as Michelle has been using our delicious pheasant meat in different ways to create many a tasty dish, being true to our ethos of ‘eat what you shoot’. A healthy, wholesome and versatile meat… pheasant is SO in season and Michelle has risen to the challenge! Barwhillanty venison is to be on the menu soon… oh and she bakes a mean cake! So look no further than Barwhillanty Estate if you are looking for a delightful and delicious driven day shooting.

Our holiday cottages (yes, two!) are now both up and running, offering a splash of luxury amongst the stunning countryside of South West Scotland. Our newest cottage, Blairinnie, sleeps 10 and Diamonds Laggan sleeps 8, so plenty of space for family and friends to escape to rural bliss… be it outdoor activities or cosy comforts, Dumfries and Galloway has it all! We can’t wait to welcome you here…
