THE RIVER TUMMEL
A dam released river giving us guaranteed class 2-4 white water every Saturday and Sunday from June to September.
With rapids such as Zig and Zag, Sharks Tooth and the grand finale of the Double Drop at the Linn of Tummel, this river is as challenging as it is exciting.
Minimum age for the Tummel is 16.
ABOUT THE RIVER
The River Tummel starts its life 60 miles to the west of Pitlochry on the windswept Rannoch Moor close to Glencoe. It begins as the River Ba and runs east passing through numerous lochs including Loch Ba, Loch Laidon, Loch Eigheach, Loch Rannoch, Dunalastair Water, Loch Tummel and finally Loch Faskally, until it reaches the main stem of the River Tay at Ballinluig.
Minimum age: 16yrs
Availability: Weekends June - mid September
Thank you all for for a great day on the Tay. The staff were all great fun, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our day. Thanks to Dee, Jack and Calum for their great instruction. The pictures are all excellent (if a little unflattering!) and captured the spirit of the trip. We will definately be back next year to try the Tummel. So look out For my part I would like to thank, most sincerely, Andy, my 'mentor', up on the gantry who realised my absolute fear of heights and who gave me space, time and lots of calm encourangement before I finally 'let go'. No rush, no come on you're holding everyone up, but a 'when you're ready... take your time to get it together' kind of attitude. It was also kind of him to shout encourangement as I decended. I make no bones about it, I was terrified, but with Andy's encouragement I made it. Please pass my deap gratitude on to this kind man - I'm sure he will remember me for all the wrong reasons. Thank you to all your team for making it happen and for all the fabulous contributions you helped raise for all the good causes. My son in law had a stroke in January and is now making a recovery to near normality, the treatment he received is in part I'm sure due to your good works, thank you.
