Barwhillanty Blog… Raw and Wild!


Signs of spring have already sprung, with spectacular starling murmurations and stunning snowdrops… and we have sprung into action at Barwhillanty. This post comes with a rather late ‘Happy New Year’, only just having the chance to put pen to paper after a busy start to 2017.

With the shooting season drawing to a close at the beginning of the month, those remaining pheasants continue to roam the rural land and will be fed until there is plenty available for their natural foraging. We have delighted in many a delicious pheasant dish and feel it is under-celebrated on the nation’s menu and by chefs at large. So please tag us in any pheasant recipes you have tried and love and let’s try to make this gorgeous game a foodie feature! We are strong believers in sustainability and responsibility in that you should eat what you shoot; he that “eats, shoots and leaves” will return only to eat shoots and leaves!

The “Raw and Wild” journey at Barwhillanty is underway! I have spent the beginning of the year on my yoga teacher training course and we will soon be launching wild yoga here: breathtaking views as you breathe and move, raw retreats giving your body and soul a treat. The holistic holiday, embracing our environment and the outdoor wonder it holds. So all you yogis out there, watch this space…

In the same vein, we are currently in the process of decorating our second holiday cottage, Blairinnie. We spent last year bringing this beautiful old farmhouse back to life, that had begun to fall into a state of ruin. Now it looks glorious! Boasting some of the most terrific views and surrounded by acres of incredible walks, we can’t wait to offer it to our holiday guests. It holds similar remote charm to our existing Diamonds Laggan, with slightly larger capacity, sleeping 10 at most. We are excited about choosing all our fabrics and furnishings to enhance the cosy countryside comfort that awaits you! So come the summer, choose Dumfries and Galloway and the choice of luxury holiday cottage will be yours…
