The lodge is let on a fully furnished basis including all linen and towels. Daily housekeeping is provided by Kay the housekeeper and it is recommended that a cook be employed (we can recommend a good agency). Hamish, the estate keeper, will be on standby to help you with all outdoor activities.

Walking & picnic

Guests are more than welcome to explore the estate on foot, whether it be the river banks or the hill. At the top of the hill is a small loch, Creag a Mhadaidh, where trout can be caught from a small boat and it's a good place for a picnic, which can be carried up by Hamish in the argocat. A picnic site and table is also provided next to one of the prettiest pools on the river. Chesthill is an ideal base for those keen on more hill walking, with a number of Munros within easy reach.

Fishing

The fishing is on the River Lyon, one of the main River Tay tributaries, for both salmon and brown trout, with 4½ miles of exclusive single and double bank fishing. The lodge fishing usually includes 6 rods fished as three beats of 2 rods (except mid August when only 4 rods are available).

Catches over the last 10 years on the South Chesthill estate have averaged 55 salmon and many trout, with 2011 being a record at 101 salmon. The catch is well spread over the spring, summer, and autumn, from March through to October, with salmon caught weighing up to mid 20s lbs.

The Lyon has a long season, from April to the end of the season on 15th October. The river has both a spring run and an autumn run of salmon, with grilse in the summer months. In addition there is excellent brown trout fishing on the river, and also on Loch Creag a Mhadaidh, which is stocked with brown trout.

Stalking

Stalking is available for one or two rifles depending on the time of year, over 6,500 acres of steep and varied ground. Approximately 50 stags and 80 hinds are taken each season, with argocats being used to extract deer from the hill.

Grouse

South Chesthill has a limited stock of grouse on the hill, which provides August tenants with one walked up day.

Additional Activities

There is a separate games room above the garage with table tennis, darts, piano and small billiards table.

Clay pigeon shooting can be arranged with the estate keeper, except during the stalking season. Clays and cartridges will be charged at cost.

There are nine hole golf courses at Aberfeldy, Kenmore, Strathtay and Killin, and an attractive 18 hole course at Taymouth Castle. Water sports are available on Loch Tay.

Pony trekking is available locally.

Being in central Perthshire it is an ideal base for exploring the central Highlands, within 12 miles of Aberfeldy, 20 miles of Pitlochry and less than two hours to Edinburgh airport.

The Scotland region

Being in central Perthshire Chesthill is an ideal base for exploring the central Highlands and the wonderful walking opportunities it contains. Chesthill is also within 12 miles of Aberfeldy, 20 miles of Pitlochry and less than two hours to Edinburgh.

Perthshire has Perth as its county town but most of its heritage and essence can be discovered in and around its other towns such as Aberfeldy, Crieff, Dunkeld, Birnam, and Pitlochry. The county is land locked but crossed by many well-known rivers such as the Tay. It spreads from rich agricultural straths in the east, to the high mountains of the southern Highlands. As such the area is very popular for the beautiful scenery and the abundant flora and fauna.

Glen Lyon

There are nine hole golf courses at Aberfeldy, Kenmore, Strathtay and Killin, and an attractive 18 hole course at Taymouth Castle. Water sports are available on Loch Tay and pony trekking is available locally.

There are many places of historic interest and gardens within easy reach, including the Fortingall Yew, reputed to be the oldest living thing in Europe! One of the most popular attractions is the area around Blair Castle and the town of Blair Atholl as there is the castle to visit, many visitor centres on the working estate and some of the great scenes of the southern Highlands. Away from Blair there are many great and distinctive Glens to visit, with Munroes to scale or small villages to explore. There are many Castles and historic country houses to visit both in the glens and down on the straths. Notable famous attractions include Scone Palace, Dunkeld Cathedral, the many four-poster stone formations that can be found near Strathtay and Strathmore, and Birnam Wood and Dunsinane Hill, famous from Shakespeare's Macbeth.
