Upper Islamouth and Meikleour House Beats are from January 2014 fished together as one beat, six days per week throughout the season.
Set in the heart of glorious Perthshire, approximately one hour's drive North of Edinburgh and 20 minutes from Perth, the Upper Islamouth & Meikleour House Beat is one of the best beats of the Tay and arguably the most pictureque.
We have two boats, two ghillies and two fishing huts, one at Meikleour Houseand one at Ferry cottage, to accommodate two fishing parties simultaneously, or a single party of six rods. Our knowledgeable ghillies advise and assist your party where required and are happy to accommodate both skilled and unskilled anglers alike. They also teach successfully to complete beginners, young and less young, and our comfortable set-up and stunning surroundings make the learning that more enjoyable.
Upper Islamouth & Meikleour Beat is a 1.7 mile double bank beat and the opportunities for wading are great. If there are two parties out on the same day, the party in the Meikleour House Lunch Hut will fish the upper part of the beat in the morning and the lower in the afternoon, while the party in the Ferry Cottage Boathouse will do the opposite. Hence both parties will have equal access to the whole beat. Our pub the Meikleour Arms can deliver to your hut wonderful picnics or more substantial lunches to make your day on the river most enjoyable and convivial.
We hope to welcome you soon.
