The River Tay is the longest river in Scotland and carries the most water at its mouth of any river in Britain. It is one of the most popular places to go canoeing in the country.
The Tay is fantastic for both whitewater kayaking and for canoe touring. There are enough rapids to keep paddlers on their toes, but overall the grade remains a reasonable 1 to 2, with the notable exceptions of Grandtully and Stanley Weir which are normally viewed as Grade 3.
It is possible to link the River Dochart, Loch Tay and the River Tay together to make one longer canoeing trip.
The SCA has a facility at Grandtully with a slalom course, camping and approved access points.
