See beavers in the wild – with a Private Beaver Safari!

Experience the evening wildlife on one of Perthshire’s loveliest rivers in late spring or summer. This is the best time to easily see the wild-living beaver family of the River Ericht and makes an excellent gift (so we are told!).

We will transport you from the meeting point in Blairgowrie to the River Ericht and guide you to the best viewing areas. Learn all about the history of beavers in Scotland, their life story, how they re-appeared in Perthshire and why they are so important to the ecology of our rivers. Although we can never guarantee wildlife sightings, we have had a 100% success rate in 2018 and 2017.

This offer is valid for up to four people and the Beaver Safari will last approx two to two and a half hours. Date to be arranged at your convenience and your booking is valid for one year from date of purchase. Price for up to 2 people is £60 and for 3 or 4 people is £80.

Key species: European beaver, Kingfisher, Sand martin, Dipper, Goosander.

Half-day Beaver Safari

This trip takes in two beaver locations where they live in different habitats. The first part of the trip goes to a location where beavers have built a series of amazing dams and we can easily see how they have changed the surroundings to produce wetlands. This is followed by a trip to a nearby river to enjoy an evening of watching the beaver family that lives there. With their lodge in the riverbank and no dams, these beavers have had a minimal impact on their environment.

This is a great trip to learn all about the history of beavers in Scotland, their life story, how they re-appeared in Perthshire and why they are so important to the ecology of our rivers and wetlands. Although we can never guarantee wildlife sightings, we have had a 100% success rate on our evening trips in 2018 and 2017.

This safari is for up to four people and will last approx four hours in the afternoon and evening.

Key species: European beaver, Kingfisher, Sand martin, Dipper, Goosander.

See Beavers in the wild with a Beaver Safari by Canoe.

We have teamed up with local canoeing experts to deliver this new tour, which takes place on a sheltered section of the River Tay close to Perth or a small loch close to Blairgowrie.

Canoeing is an ideal way to get close to wildlife with minimal disturbance and we usually see a variety of bird life as well as the local beaver lodge, beaver trails, evidence of feeding and  the beavers themselves ( and although we can never guarantee wildlife sightings, we see the beavers on around 60% of our canoe safaris). The best time to see the beavers is in the evening but we can run the tour at any time.

The Beaver Safari by Canoe includes canoeing instruction, your canoe, buoyancy aid, guiding by your wildlife guide and a wee dram at the end!

Prices for a 2 hour event with 2-6  participants are £45 per person.  Clyde Muirshiel Rangers have a blog article about their trip here:  http://clydemuirshiel.co.uk/30052-2/

Contact Daniele for availability on: events@perthshirewildlife.co.uk

Key species: European beaver, Kingfisher, Osprey, Sand martin, Heron, Sandpiper.
