South Chesthill enjoys over 6 miles of single and double bank fishing and 32 pools on the River Lyon, one of the major Tay tributaries, which is a beautiful and varied river. An average of 32 salmon per year over the last five years have been caught (2015 – 2019). The catch is well spread over the spring, summer, and autumn, from March through to October, with salmon caught weighing up to mid 20lbs.
Chesthill House sleeps 12-15 people and comes with a traditional sporting estate of over 7,000 acres of hill and 4.5 miles of river to explore. The house is located in Glenlyon, one of the prettiest Glens in Scotland, is easy to get to being less than 2 hours drive from Edinburgh, and yet is remote and completely private with unspoilt views of hills and a waterfall.
This attractive holiday cottage dates back to the 1800s. The area around the cottage is particularly enchanting as some of the photographs show, including dramatic hills, open fields, mature trees and the River Lyon.
