Kayaking & Canoeing in Perthshire


Along with great scenery and countryside, Perthshire offers us a huge amount of water to explore. We have miles and miles of lochs and rivers. Nearby, we have the famous River Tay, the largest volume river in Scotland.

Tay Descent


The Tay Descent is an annual event set in the Autumn. The River Tay is the biggest volume river in Britain and travels through some of the best scenery in Scotland. There are two choices with the Tay Descent, choose to tour or race down one of two courses, the "Long Course" (24 miles) from Dunkeld to Perth, or the "Short Course" (7 miles) from Stanley Mills to Perth. The Long course passes through several rapids; the Short Course through only one.
