The Barwhillanty Blog begins
Let me introduce the “Barwhillanty Blog”… a personal insight into the rural happenings that conserve the beautiful countryside, whilst inspiring enjoyment, within the realms of our estate in South West Scotland; a business and a home, recently taken over by a young landlord, Oscar Yerburgh, who happens to be my husband!
For a little background, Oscar made the decision to move back to the family estate full-time, as his father, the late John Yerburgh, was becoming very elderly. There was a steep learning curve as Oscar took on board the management of the accounts and begun to work towards his vision of an exemplary estate. After a few years of groundwork, hands-on learning and administrational organisation and tidying, beautiful Barwhillanty is beginning to bloom and bear the fruits of labour.
For me, it has been a journey of education and newfound appreciation for the countryside and I would like to share my journey with you. Let me begin with our wedding… a magical day in May, where Scottish bagpipes filled the streets of a small mountain village in Greece (where my father is from) to meet traditional Greek dancing, amongst a celebration of energy, joy and laughter to pave the way for our lifetimes. Upon our return, I begun my transition from working full-time in Edinburgh, to a split week between Edinburgh and Dumfries and Galloway. We relish the outdoors and are fortunate enough to be placed in an outdoor playground, where we hope many will come to experience and enjoy.
Now, five months in and expecting our first baby in the Spring, we are excited about the journey ahead and capturing your enthusiasm for the wonders of Barwhillanty…
