Summerhill has one of the finest locations in the Tay valley and for a fishing party the view has few equals. The property sits within its own beautiful private grounds on the edge of the village of Stanley and is just 7 miles from Perth and 10 miles from Dunkeld and there are a wealth of things to do and see in the surrounding area. 

The house itself sits on a bluff immediately above the river and has views upstream towards Stanley Mill and down through Benchil and Pitlochry. The veranda has magnetic qualities for fisherman who are drawn outside by the sight of fish jumping below and it is the perfect place  to relax after a day on the river or to muse on the prospects for the day ahead. 

Summerhill is let for a maximum of 12 people at any one time, all linen is provided and the property comes with the services of a house keeper. The weekly fishing’s are a short drive from the property. 

Summerhill and the village of Stanley lie in the heart of Perthshire and are just 7 miles from Perth and 10 miles from Dunkeld. Perthshire has a rich history encompassing castles, distilleries, outdoor events, literary connections ranging from Beatrix Potter to Rosamunde Pilcher, a burgeoning food and drink sector, Perth racecourse and a great deal more. Further afield Edinburgh is only fifty miles away and there is an enormous amount of activities for non fishers to try and pack into a week. 

 

 

The River Tay is one of Scotland’s salmon fishing jewels and fresh fish are present from the opening day on the 15th Jan right through to the close of the season. The strength of the runs of fish vary from year to year but the Tay has performed strongly in comparison to many Scottish rivers and the river boasts some of Scotland’s most productive beats.

 

 The proprietor of Summerhill House has built a portfolio of weekly fishing’s from early spring right through to the close of the season. The names of the beats Stobhall, Upper Scone, Murthly, Taymount, Ballathie etc need no introduction and the weeks take in some of the prime periods of the season.

 

 In nearly all cases it is a requirement to take the House and fishing together.

 

Summerhill sleeps a maximum of 12 in great comfort and there are four double bedrooms (with en-suite facilities), one twin room and two single bedrooms (each with second beds) and two further bathrooms and one further shower room. 

The reception rooms include drawing room, sitting room (with TV, videos, games etc) a conservatory with snooker table, dining room, fully fitted modern kitchen and breakfast room, various utility rooms and staff sitting room.

The house is very well equipped for fishing parties with rod racks, scales, deep freeze, clothes washing facilities and drying room. 

Please note that both pets and smoking are not permitted in the house at any time.
