Barmolloch is not only home to Helen & Stewart and their family, but also to a whole host of wildlife, free range animals, and at times resident volunteers who come to assist with the biodynamic principle farming.
Working towards biodynamic/permaculture organic gardening in large polytunnels to produce an array of healthy vegetables and fruit, we also share our space with rare-breed Boreray sheep, hens, geese, ducks, and bees.
So fresh eggs and vegetables are aplenty and such produce is available to you during your stay if you wish. If you'd like to indulge in some therapeutic gardening & growing, our volunteers will be happy of the help and guide you to green-fingered glee.
The farm and the surrounding local area are a nature lover's dream in themselves, and a great glimpse into sustainable living. To make it an extra special experience for you (or your retreat guests), there are a few added bonuses too...
Melt away your worries and relax . There's no better way to end the day!
Gather your tribe around the fire and share stories and songs under the stars.
Take a mindful moment beneath the trees, surrounded by nature, and listen to the sound of the river running by as you clear your head.
Natural Plunge Pool
There's a burn running along the boundary of the farm, in which we've created an easy-access plunge pool ideal for cold water immersion.
Outside Seating & Dining
Dine al fresco at the front of your cottage or bring everyone together outside the Wild Medicine Kitchen.
It's easy to unload with ample parking just in front of your accommodation.
You’ll feel right at home in our comfortable cottages
Each accommodates 4-6 guests, with self-catering facilities, views to the burn and wooded hillside beyond, plus large sliding doors lead onto the patio and garden grounds. We provide towels, sheets, blankets, pillows, dishes, pots and pans — all the amenities you need for a relaxing retreat.
We are aspiring to achieve self sustainability, so the heating & hot water is provided by a bio mass boiler and solar panels contribute electricity.
If you'd like, the Wild Medicine Kitchen team can arrange a welcome hamper of fresh produce and essentials for you and your guests to enjoy on arrival.

The Local Area
Mid-Argyll is the perfect playground for nature-lovers, history-fanatics, and those looking for some general respite. Nature is, after all, the greatest place to heal and recharge.
The adjacent Kilmartin Glen is one of Scotland’s richest prehistoric landscapes. Within six miles of Kilmartin village there are over 800 ancient monuments.
The wild and remote Atlantic coastline offers empty golden beaches, rocky alcoves & complete tranquility.
Nearby Knapdale Forest spreads from coast to coast and it’s here that beavers have been reintroduced into Scotland.
Every year nearly 2,000 boats make the journey along the nine miles of ‘Britain’s most beautiful shortcut’ – the Crinan Canal. Its tow path makes for a wonderful walk or cycle, while Dunardy offers one of many serene forest walks.
So if you or your guests want to combine your retreat with some local discovery and exploration, there’s plenty to see and do.
