Open Canoe Holidays > Guided Descent of the River Tay

The longest river in the UK which has the biggest volume of water passing through annually makes for an exciting canoe trip on The River Tay. Starting near Killin at the west side of Loch Tay we take in the views of the Lawler mountain range to the north before we head on to the river where we navigate our way down through some white water all the way to the picturesque town of Perth.

Trip Details

Learn how to paddle the traditional style open canoe

Paddle from Killin all the way to Perth, taking in majestic views of Strath Tay

Paddle some exciting white water, with an option of some more challenging rapids

Sleep under canvas or B&B options available

Visit an ancient Roman settlement 

Day 1  Killin - Kenmore 22km

Starting off at the western end of the loch we have a quick kit check and get packed before covering emergency procedures. We will also cover some basic canoe skills to get us moving with a little more efficiency.  Off we head down the fabulous loch taking in the breathtaking views of The Lawlers Mountain range to the north, heading for the small village of Killin where we check out the 5,000yr old crannog before putting camp up for the night.

Day 2  Kenmore - Grandtully 20km

After breakfast, we get packed and ready to tackle some of the white water on the river,  after navigating 'Chinese falls' and some excitement later we make our way down through majestic Strath Tay soaking up the views with a few more sections of white water before we arrive at Grantully. With an option to run the main rapid if people wished with a chance to dry off at the nearby camp in case of any unexpected soakings!

Day 3  Grandtully - Dunkeld 20km

We get packed up and start meandering our way down towards the town of Dunkled where we pass the confluence of the River Tummel. There is a very impressive bridge built in the 16th century by General Wade which still doesn't have a weight limit!

Day 4  Dunkled - Inchtuthil 16km

After breakfast, we get boats packed and back on the river, paddling under some impressive bridge structures before making our way down towards camp for the night where there was formally a Roman Fort and the worlds largest hedge!

Day 5 Inchtuthill - Perth 22km

The last day where we head past Scone Palace, this is where all new Kings are knighted and are brought into power. Just downstream is our finish at the sandstone bridge in the beautiful town of Perth.
