This trip visits a wonderful location where beavers have built a series of amazing dams and we can easily see how they have changed the surroundings to produce wildlife-rich wetlands. We spend the first half of the evening on a walk to see all these changes in the environment and the second half sitting by the beaver pools, watching the beavers swimming, feeding, grooming and even dam repairing if we are lucky!
This is a great trip to learn all about the history of beavers in Scotland, their life story, how they re-appeared in Perthshire and why they are so important to the ecology of our rivers and wetlands. Although we can never guarantee wildlife sightings, we had a 100% success rate of seeing the beavers on this trip in 2017 and 2018, 95% success rate in 2019 & 2020 and 100% success rate in 2021. This is a great trip for families as everyone can collect their own beaver chips and beaver-chewed sticks!
