Wildlife 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. 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 and  its inhabitants! The best time to see the beavers is in the evening but we can run the tour at any time.

The Wildlife 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 private 1.5 to 2 hour event with 2-5  participants are £45 per person.  Clyde Muirshiel Rangers have a blog article about their trip here:  http://clydemuirshiel.co.uk/30052-2/

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 local canoeing partners 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!
