One of the best fishing beats on The Tay

The Newtyle Fishings are situated in some of the prettiest of exceptional Pretty Perthshire countryside, easily reached from Glasgow or Edinburgh, on the River Tay and about two miles from Dunkeld. The river is Scotland’s longest, and well-known for its salmon fishing and its productive autumn run.

The property extends to 1¼ miles of double bank fishing and forms one of the most impressive and respected samlon fishings on the middle Tay. Bounded up river by Eastwood and down river by Murthly, it provides an excellent range of water, offering opportunity at all heights of water.

Fishing isn’t restricted to named pools and most of the river is fishable in different conditions. The beat is mainly fished by bank and wading, although boat fishing is also popular. Last season two 30lb springers were landed on the fly. It has traditionally been let as an eight rod beat with two further proprietors’ rods.

The property also comes with a charming fishing hut with a coal fire. Its elevated position affords superb views over the river to Newtyle Hill – incredibly private, this is all still just five minutes from the A9.

The guide price is £1,000,000. For further information please contact CKD Galbraith on 01738 451 111 or visit
