The Meikleour Beech Hedge is located right besides A93 Perth-Blairgowrie road, about 18 km north of Perth and 6 km south of Blairgowrie, in Scotland. This solid wall of beech trees is 36 meters tall at its northern end and 24 meters tall at its southern end, with an average height of over 30 meters, which makes it the tallest hedge in the world, as recognized by the Guinness Book of Records. It is also longest hedge in the world - 530 meters, more than half kilometer or one third of a mile long. Despite its monumental proportion, the hedge is easy to miss because to the untrained eye it looks like a tall, well-kept row of trees.

The Meikleour Beech Hedge located near Meikleour, Perthshire, Scotland, alongside the A93 Perth-Blairgowrie Road, was planted in the autumn of 1745 by Jean Mercer and her husband, Robert Murray Nairne on the Marquess of Lansdowne's Meikleour estate.

It is said the hedge grows towards the heavens because the men who planted it were killed at the Battle of Culloden.
