Experience the evening or early morning wildlife on one of Perthshire’s loveliest rivers in spring or summer (mid April to mid September). This is the best time to easily see the wild-living beaver families in Perthshire and makes an excellent gift (so we are told!).
We meet you near Blairgowrie or Perth and take a short drive close to the river. We have a 15 minute walk to the water, during which you will find out 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. We will do a bit of riverside foraging too! Although we can never guarantee wildlife sightings, we had a 100% success rate of seeing the beavers on this trip in 2017 and 2018, and 95% success rate in 2019 and 2020, along with regular sightings of kingfishers and occasional otter appearances!
