Basubu says

This unique getaway in the breathtaking Galloway hills of South West Scotland is anything but ordinary. From flying in the air with aerial yoga sessions to diving into Scottish lochs and bathing in the forest canopies, it’s the perfect way to get in touch with your wild side. A weekend of outdoor yoga practice combined with nutritious meals makes for an ideal mind and body reset, leaving you energised and utterly refreshed. Plus, there are pet pygmy goats roaming the grounds! And who doesn't love a miniature farm animal?

A family asset since 1884, Barwhillanty Estate, originally a sporting estate, has been nurtured with a commitment to conservation and a responsibility to land management. With a passion to protect our land and associated infrastructure, we invest sustainably, respecting our environment for future generations.

Instrumental to sustainable timber production, the late J.M.A.Yerburgh, father to Oscar Yerburgh, pioneered the journey into productive forestry in the 1950s. Today, forestry still forms the core of our sustainable business portfolio, alongside farming and our continuing diversification into experiences and events.

Introducing ourselves as the current custodians, we are Maria and Oscar Yerburgh. We live and breathe Barwhillanty Estate, with our four children; Acacia, Leander, Thalia and Xanthus.

We hope to inspire you here in the beautiful Galloway hills of South West Scotland.
