The Tay

  • Scenic
  • Great Fun
  • Perfect for Beginners

Scotland’s longest river  and the UK’s largest river by volume of discharge. These facts go some way to explaining its importance for rafting – reliable water levels throughout the year. A great fun, scenic introduction to rafting, including the Grandtully rapids.

The Tummel

  • Adventure
  • Challenging
  • Double-Drop Waterfall

The Tummel has a lot going for it. Located near Pitlochry, Perthshire and just off the main A9, it’s a dam-controlled river offering predictable releases and so is not rainfall-dependent. It culminates in the Grade IV “Linn of Tummel” double-drop waterfall.

Other Rivers

The featured rivers are the most popular due to reliability of water levels. Scotland has a number of excellent rafting rivers of all types and grades, however many are very much rainfall dependent. For group bookings we offer trips all around Scotland to suit location and requirements, from easy trips on the Spey or Dee (similar in nature to the Tay) to adventurous white-water on the Garry, Orchy, Braan or Findhorn, or full-on dam-release on the Moriston.
