BACKGROUND

Barwhillanty is a 5000 acre family estate in the beautiful Galloway hills of Kirkcudbright, in South West Scotland. Half of the estate consists of managed woodlands, principally conifers, with the remainder as hill farmland. It has been run passionately for sporting purposes for over 100 years and, with the undulating topography, expansive forests and an abundant roe population, offers a variety of challenging stalks for the discerning roe stalker both from high seat and on foot. Barwhillanty is 2 hours from Glasgow Airport, Newcastle Airport and 1½ hours from Prestwick airport. The well known food town of Castle Douglas is seven miles away. Airport Taxis / collection can be arranged at cost but its is advisable to hire a car. Directions are provided on booking.

 

ACCOMMODATION

Accommodation is provided in Diamonds Laggan Cottage: a 5 star holiday cottage on the Estate. The house sleeps 6, with 3 double bedrooms (twins on request), 3 bathrooms, sitting room, and open plan kitchen / living room. The house, which must be taken with the stalking, can be catered (self service) or self-catered. Catered food and drink (in moderation) is provided at the start of your stay. Provisions for a full breakfast are left for you to prepare. A three course dinner is prepared each evening for you to serve. Fresh rolls can be delivered daily, if desired.
