An escape to rural bliss with stunning countryside to explore, on and around the estate... the perfect getaway for country sports and oudoor enthusiasts.
Situated in a peaceful location, with stunning open countryside views, the two 'five star' detached holiday cottages: Diamonds Laggan and Blairinnie, are located on Barwhillanty Estate, making an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. Barwhillanty, which has been family run since 1884, is a 5000 acre estate set in the beautiful Galloway hills of Kirkcudbrightshire in South West Scotland. These farmhouses have been renovated to an excellent standard with over 18 miles of picturesque walks on the estate and trout fishing is available on request. The surrounding area offers a tremendous amount to occupy guests including golf, sailing, horse riding and cycling (both road and moisture biking as this is famous 7Stanes country!) along with many other adventurous activities. For those with young children, there are many great days out on the doorstep. If arts are a passion, a quick glance at the surroundings will see exactly why the region has inspired so many artists, writers and craftsmen, from the artists' town of Kirkcudbright to the region's infamous Spring Fling festival. The food town of Castle Douglas is 7 miles away, beach is 10 miles and local shop, pub and restaurant is 2 miles.
