White Water Rafting in Scotland
Take a look at this Experience near Aberfeldy, Perth and Kinross – Scotland.
Go white water rafting in Scotland where you’ll join others in an inflatable eight person raft with an experienced guide on some of the UK s best white water. The River Tay set in the heart of Highland Perthshire is the longest river in Scotland and famous for diverse white water. Starting at a few splashes for the tame at heart which is graded 1 on the UK s White Water graded system. To white-knuckle, stomach-churning rapids and beyond (which go up to grade 6 that is far too rough to offer commercially). Take on the River Tay rapids at a level that suits and career your way at speed and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Scotland’s Highlands. Scotland’s white water rafting experience is the perfect gift for the adventurer in your life or for yourself.
Selected weekends from April to November. Spring and autumn are the best times to raft, as water levels are higher than in the drier summer months. Summer weekends fill quickly – book six to eight weeks in advance.
