The perfect introduction to white water rafting, beginning as it does on the meandering gentle water of Aberfeldy and culminating in a descent of the famous rapids at Grandtully, home of The Freespirits Outdoor Company and Scottish Rafting.
The perfect trip for all, families, individuals and groups alike.
We also have a beautiful onsite restaurant for refreshments and food after your trip, the perfect opportunity to relax in view of the rapids you have just run and chat about your adventure.
The Tay begins its course in the village of Kenmore where it flows out of Loch Tay. In fact there are several tributaries which run into the loch, but they have different names (Rivers Fillan, Dochart and Lochay). The river is already quite large by our standards.
It has a typical flow in excess of 100 cubic meters per second in Kenmore. By the time it reaches Perth the River Tay has the highest flow of any river in the UK. The stretch we run is the Aberfeldy-Grandtully run and is six miles long, culminating in a descent of the national white water slalom section at Grandtully.
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!!
