Chesthill House (sleeps 15) and the Gardener’s Cottage (sleeps 4) are both pet-friendly, and provide the ideal base from which to explore both the estate and the surrounding area.
The estate has roughly six miles of river and 7,000 acres to explore, and is situated at the eastern end of Glenlyon. The River Lyon runs through the glen: it rushes through rocky gorges at the east end of the estate then broadens and softens amongst meadows at the west end. Steep hills rise either side of the glen and the tops are carpeted in heather with remnants of the ancient Caledonian forest visible at the westerly end. The estate offers hills for walking, some of the most breathtaking deer stalking in Scotland (c.140 stags and hinds per year), some of the most varied salmon fishing in Scotland (four miles of the river Lyon, average 89 salmon over last three years), trout fishing, escorted nature walks, photography stalking, and clay pigeon shooting. Pony trekking, golf, and water sports are also all available in the area, making Glenlyon the perfect country getaway.
