Inverinain Lodge is a small, traditional stone built Highland House set in a semi-remote private situation on the south side of Glenlyon facing north.
Inverinain enjoys great privacy and wonderful views. It faces onto its own fishing and has a lovely situation within South Chestill Estate. The lodge was extensively renovated in 1998.The lodge lies below a forestry plantation, next to a beautiful mountain stream and surrounded by some wonderful mature larches. There is a traditional steading building next to the lodge. It is possible to walk down to the river from the lodge, which lies amidst low ground pasture and is reached up a private track from Invervar hamlet in Glenlyon.
Inverinain is 14 miles from Aberfeldy and 22 miles from Pitlochry. There are golf courses at Aberfeldy, Kenmore, Strathtay and Killin. Water sports are available on Loch Tay. Glenlyon is a splendid base for sightseeing and exploring the Central Highlands, and yet is only 85 miles from Edinburgh or Glasgow. Walking opportunity exists at or near to Inverinain.
Upstairs are 3 twin bedrooms (2 with basins), a bathroom /WC and separate WC. Downstairs is a well-equipped kitchen/dining room leading through an arch into the sitting room with fireplace. Across the hallway is a second sitting room/study which can be converted into a twin bedroom; at the back is a shower room/WC.
Adjacent is the steading building which has a garage, games room and space for dogs or storage.
The lodge is self-catering and let fully furnished including linen and towels. The rent is inclusive of electricity. The telephone is billed afterwards.
The fishing comprises 1½ miles of single bank fishing on the River Lyon which is one of the main upper tributaries of the River Tay. The Lyon is 30 miles long and flows from Loch Lyon through one of the loveliest glens in Scotland. The fishing is for up to 4 salmon rods and for trout. A 4x4 vehicle is useful but not essential.
The Lyon, on this stretch, fishes from May through to the end of season on 15th October. It is a semi-spate river and conditions are therefore variable and also dependent on the water flow on the Tay. There are traditionally spring and autumn runs and a grilse run in the summer. This water has been inconsistently fished in recent years. A catch of 3-4 salmon and some nice brown trout have been achieved in some weeks, with further potential.
There are two boats and a fishing hut suitable for picnics. Fishing notes are available for tenants. The keeper on South Chesthill Estate (Hamish Rae) will introduce tenants to the water and be available to give advice to tenants during their tenancy. Some additional ghillie assistance may be available on payment by the tenant.
Fly fishing and spinning is required on this water. Prawn and shrimp are prohibited on the Tay system. Worm is not permitted. A voluntary catch and release policy exists.
The estate reserves the right to use a house rod during the season although this is not taken up very often; the house rod will fit in with the tenant.
There is excellent brown trout fishing on the beat and it is not uncommon to catch fish of up to 2 or 3lbs. The trout fishing should be used in sympathy with, and secondary to, the salmon fishing. Extra trout fishing on other parts of South Chesthill Estate may be available by arrangement, and on payment to the keeper.
