Beaver Tours and wildlife experiences in beautiful Perthshire

IMPORTANT BIRTHDAY INFORMATION

We have just turned 10! Join us to help us celebrate!

Perthshire Wildlife

Welcome to Perthshire Wildlife, a small Scottish company which helps connect locals and holiday makers to the beautiful Perthshire countryside and wonderful wildlife that lives here. We run a variety of wildlife experiences across Perthshire, specialising in Beaver Safaris where we observe the wonderful European beavers living wild on the River Tay catchment.

Central Perthshire is one of the best places in Scotland and the UK to see beavers in the wild and we run safaris by canoe, in conjunction with local canoeing experts, as well as on foot to get close to these amazing creatures. We have been running our beaver safaris for ten years and have seen beavers on over 95% of these tours over the past 5 years.

We can also run private tours and guided walks for you – just contact us with the species or place you would like to see and we will do the rest!

Our tours have been featured on Great Coastal Railway Journeys – see us on the River Tay with Michael Portillo here, as well as on Landward and Countryfile – this clip shows our beaver-spotting safari on the River Tay with Charlotte!

A special place all land owners should aspire to. Had a lovely time at Bamff Beaver Safari last
Saturday. Totally relaxing, chilling and informative visit. Guide was so enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable.
I was accompanied by a small hen party, who were lovely company, what a great alternative celebration.
Highly recommend. Even a wee toast to welcome the Beavers back to Scotland and a bit of Shortbread.

10/10 Beaver (& Otter) Tour My wife and I drove to Alyth to meet our tour guide. She was prompt and cheerful, depsite some rainy weather, and we proceeded to follow her in our car to a Beaver sanctuary where we were given expert information on the lifecycle, environment and ecological impact of the Beaver in Scotland and around the world. We then drove off to a local river, which was fairly easy to get to (via a short rek through some fields). The guide was also a bat expert, and showed us her equipment to detect the bats' sonar and to differentiate the species via the feedback on the detector. We sat beside the river upstream from a small weir, or waterfall, next to a submerged Beaver dam. We almost immediately saw an Otter, and then proceeded to see numerous Beavers swimming past us as, mere meteres away, which we got a great look at and made some lovely photographs and memories. It is a quiet spot and so there is no difficulty finding Beavers here. Our guide, Jean, was friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and it was a totaly privelege to be on this wonderful tour. I hope to make this tour again one day when we return to Scotland in the future.

Great safari, loved seeing the beavers Great trip, just the four of us and the tour guide. She was able to give us lots of information about the local area, specifically on beaver reintroduction, and showed us signs of beaver activity in the area. We then walked along the river, stopping at the recommended spots, until the beavers appeared! We saw about half a dozen, adults and babies, and got some great photos. Lovely animals. Finished with a dram of whisky! Beautiful evening well spent. My main recommendation would be to go in summer for those lovely long evenings – we lost the light fairly early unfortunately, but still had a great time.

Beautiful Perthshire

Perthshire is right in the centre of Scotland and easily reached from Scotland’s cities. It is on the border of the Highlands and fertile Lowlands and so contains the wildlife found in both these areas, ensuring there is lots to see! Also known as Big Tree Country, there is a huge range of beautiful woodlands to visit. On a day out you could visit Europe’s oldest tree, see beautiful waterfalls, lochs, wildflower meadows and woodlands. We can help you find grouse, deer, ospreys, leaping salmon and beavers!
