Enjoy the hills, rivers, woods and castle all year round through the many activities on offer, such as:

Our congratulations to Alice and Jade, who were married in the chapel here on the 11th of July. Once again the weather beat the forecast, and the glamorously-dressed guests enjoyed a reception in the walled garden, and dinner and dancing in a marquee.
We had a great month on the River Tay in June, catching 115 salmon and two sea trout at Murthly. Why not book a day and enjoy the fine early summer weather, bird life and trees as you spend a relaxing day on the river?
Our new website now features our new logo: a graphite drawing of a Douglas fir cone and needles by Oregon artist Janene Walkky. We chose it because it is an individual piece of art rather than a corporate logo, and because the Estate's extensive collection of early American conifers is its most distinctive feature. Read Janene's blog post to find out the historical connection between Murthly Estate and Oregon.
Currently we are working with Murthly Primary School to improve bicycle access between the village and the school, so that children do not have to bicycle in the school car park or use the same entry and exit points. We look forward to seeing the completion of this project.
We're delighted to confirm that the Perthshire Amber Festival, held every autumn, will return to Murthly Estate for the third year running, with an afternoon concert in the chapel on Saturday 31st of October.
