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.

Highlights for guided descent of the river tay

  • 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
