Perthshire Wildlife

Covid 19 statement – from 20th November we are back to a 5 mile travel restriction in Scotland so we can only take immediate bookings from locals within Perth and Kinross. Anyone who books for a tour and then can’t attend due to Covid restrictions will of course either get their money back, or we will extend your booking until you can make it. Thank you to so many people who have done the latter as it has helped to keep us going.

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 guided walks and events across Big Tree Country to enjoy our amazing Perthshire wildlife and countryside. Popular walks include our Beaver Safaris where we observe European beavers living wild on the River Tay catchment, Beautiful Bluebells, Batty Supersenses, Spooky Species, Foraging events to learn about what’s safe (and not!) to eat from the wild and guided tours of the amazing Cateran Trail.

Central Perthshire is one of the best places to see European 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 were recently featured on Landward and were on Countryfile on a beaver safari by kayak last year – see the clip on the right where we are beaver-spotting on the River Tay with Charlotte!

We hope to start our new Angus Coastal Tours in 2021 if feasible, unfortunately we couldn’t launch them this year as planned. This involves a day trip to visit some of Scotland’s best beaches, watch noisy seabirds, find beautiful seaside wildflowers and spotting wildlife in the sea – hopefully seals & dolphins!

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

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!
