Beaver Tours and wildlife experiences in beautiful Perthshire


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 our beautiful Scottish countryside and the wonderful wildlife that lives here. We run a variety of wildlife tours across Perthshire and Angus, specialising in Beaver tours 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 over 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!

Beavers! A great evening out to see the beavers awakening from their daytime slumber and start the evening forage. Joan our guide was very helpful if finding the beavers and predicting where they would appear.

A fantastic evening was made perfect at the end, watching the beavers pottering and playing around their lodge Our Beaver Safari last Thursday was a fabulous birthday present. Jean was an excellent guide, showing us and explaining everything about beavers' lives and activities and answering our many questions with patience and humour. We also chatted a lot about human environmental management which was really interesting. Seeing the beavers pottering in the river with the younger ones playing was so exciting. We could even hear them making little noises. A perfect end to a lovely evening. Highly recommended.

Excellent time with Perthshire Wildlife! We had a great experience spotting beavers with my very enthusiastic son and his cousin (both 7 years). Our guide, Joan, was lovely and very knowledgeable. We got a really good insight into the beavers habitat and way of life. You do need to be super quiet for the beavers to show themselves, so would bear that in mind. Would highly recommend. 🙂

A brilliant evening - I could've stayed out all night! Daniele was so knowledgeable about the beavers and to see them in the wild was such a treat. We learnt so much - i'd highly recommend it. It was the start of our stay in Scotland & Perthshire Wildlife set the bar very highly!

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!
