Beavers in the wild – with a Canoe Safari!

Perthshire has a bonanza of special wildlife and one of the species that we are very well known for is the European Beaver. Perthshire has a beaver population of up to 200 individuals on the River Tay catchment, which includes the Rivers Isla and Ericht and their tributaries. As well as being found on rivers, they can be found living in lochs and large ponds.

Join us for a fabulous Beaver Safari by canoe with our partners, local canoeing experts Outdoor Explore, where we will explore a loch close to Blairgowrie, or a stretch on the Rivers Isla or Ericht. Choose the location to correspond with your canoeing ability – the loch is perfect for beginners, while the Ericht and Isla are suitable for paddlers with some experience –  we also change loch locations during the bird nesting season (Apr – July).

It is great fun with nice, easy canoeing and we easily see lots of evidence of the beaver family; an amazing lodge, beaver canals, feeding stations and chewed branches! The Beaver Safari by canoe includes canoeing instruction, your canoe, buoyancy aid, guiding by your wildlife guide and a wee dram at the end!
