Welcome to Murthly Estate

Overlooking the River Tay near Dunkeld in Highland Perthshire, Murthly Estate is the place to get away from it all and relax in beautiful surroundings where the sights and sounds of nature hold sway. Enjoy the hills, rivers, woods and castle all year round through the many activities on offer, such as:


  • Fishing for salmon and trout on the River Tay
  • Getting married at Murthly Castle
  • Holding your own corporate event or private party
  • Enjoying a day's shooting with friends
  • Walking or cycling on the Estate's extensive path network

Weddings at Murthly Castle

We still have some availability for weddings at Murthly Castle in 2017 and 2018. The Castle, the Chapel, and the Walled Garden can all be used for wedding ceremonies and receptions, whether religious, humanist or civil. With magnificent trees all along the entrance drive, the setting is hard to beat. Please get in touch to arrange a viewing.

Fishing on the River Tay

By the end of June, the season total for the Murthly Beats stood at 264 salmon and five sea trout. There has been a tremendous sustained run since early April, with 216 salmon caught in the last three months alone. Book now before availability runs out!

Friends of The Birnam Oak

A new group called Friends of the Birnam Oak has been set up recently to fund ongoing maintenance to the Estate's best-known tree, the famous Birnam Oak. The group aims to improve the immediate environs of the tree and to bring more regular events to it, following the acclaimed performances of Macbeth performed by the Oxford Shakespeare Company in June. If you want to join the Friends and help them with their efforrts, have a look at their Facebook page.

Visits & Events

Over the next few weeks and months we look forward to a visit from National Trust of Scotland members, and the return of the ever-popular Perthshire Amber Festival. In the meantime we have weddings and blue-sky business events to look forward to. Murthly's certainly a place to find the space and time to think!
