Featuring leafy embankments and waters brimming with otters, lampreys and beavers, the world-renowned River Tay is an angler’s paradise in the Scottish heartlands.

Two “beats” – Dunkeld House Water and Newtyle Water – are being offered for sale in a rare opportunity to purchase the fishing rights to the section of river.
