WHAT IS IT?
A descent of some of Scotlands most beautiful rivers in a purpose built inflatable raft. The rivers we use vary from mild and gentle family runs to wet and wild for the more adventurous. All of our rafting journeys are helmed by one of our highly trained and experienced raft guides, who will ensure your safety, enjoyment and possibly bore you senseless with some stories of rafting days past.
All guides have been trained and assessed by Steve to his very exacting standards and all are currently well within their sell by date.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BRING?
Shoes (that can get wet)
A Sense of Humour
Freespirits will provide you with a wetsuit, buoyancy aid, and helmet.
DO I NEED TO BE ABLE TO SWIM?
No need, everybody wears a buoyancy aid so you can float away till your heart's content.
WHAT EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED?
None whatsoever!! Each raft is being helmed by a qualified guide who will teach you the basic skills you require and guide you safely down the river.
HOW OLD DO YOU NEED TO BE?
You have to be 6 years old to go rafting on the River Tay (10-12yrs+ if high water) and 16 years old for the River Tummel or any of the Grade 5 rivers that we run. We do White Water Rafting on the following rivers in Scotland. Click on a link below to find out more about that river trip and see pictures :
As there are a few rivers that we run that are very weather dependent we offer a 'best river day' trip. Depending on the water levels on that day we choose what river would be the best. If you have one in mind then let us know and we would run that one if possible that day. The Orchy, the Morriston and the Braan are better in nice high water.
Available Wednesday, Thursday, Friday Saturday and Sundays

Can I express my thanks on behalf of all the lads from the stag doo party on Sunday for an amazing experience. Maybe you remember us as the group with the guy with the bowling shoes! The quality, humour and attitude of the instructors was fantastic. They made it a superb activity and great day for all of us. the photo's of us surfing the last rapid are going to be blown up and put out on the wedding day. Next time we want the big dogs on the River Tummel!!
