Barwhillanty Blog… Raw and Wild retreats and wedding feasts!


What a summer it has been! Blessed with brilliant sunshine for countless days, Barwhillanty has blossomed and bloomed all at once… launching our first retreat and first weddings in true delight.

’Raw and Wild’ became real and wonderful in May with our first all-embracing guests experiencing the outdoorsy, invigorating and wholesome living our retreats offer. Interspersing the days with morning and evening yoga that celebrated different styles, paces and locations on the estate, we managed to fit in an afternoon of foraging, wild swimming and pizzas freshly fired up in the walled garden. We feasted as well as foraged, indulging in plenty of Barwhillanty Estate produce, with a nutritional thread tying it all together. Being a dentist and nutritionist, my passion and philosophy lies in creating healthy and wholesome food that is not only nutritious (and delicious!), but free from any attacking or refined sugars, ensuring a low glycemic index and a low cariogenic potential. Thus promoting a happy body, happy teeth and not forgetting a happy tummy! My dream would be to create a ‘Raw and Wild’  recipe book one day… but first, more retreats. We are looking at May 2019 for our next exclusive retreat… so please get in touch if you want to find your ‘Raw and Wild’ side…

Or if you are looking to walk down the aisle embracing South West Scotland’s stunning style. We had the joy of sharing our pocket of magic with two beautiful couples on their big days this summer… two very different, bespoke weddings with a personal touch. There was nothing more magical than bringing an atmosphere of happiness and celebration to the grounds of Barwhillanty. From Tipi tents to Dhol drumming, from ceilidh dancing to campfire burning, from games on the lawn to Sri Lanken style feasting… such creative, charismatic, charming celebrations graced the gardens!

We hope to offer a select few unique and exclusive weddings, as well as retreats, here in the future, so whether it be the sound of the yoga gong or the ringing of wedding bells, look no further than the breathtaking beauty of Barwhillanty…
