We’ll be white water canoeing the mighty river Tay, through some fun rapids, starting gentle and paddling our way up to Grade 3! You’ll spend the first morning being coached on rapid paddle techniques at Kenmore, the beautiful banks of the Tay. After lunch we’ll set off on our adventure, encountering some nice rapids to play in, against the dramatic mountainous backdrop. We’ll finish this day in the picturesque town of Aberfelde.
