Description of River Bugging in Perthshire
Join us for an exciting river bugging session on the River Tummel, situated just north of Pitlochry in Highland Perthshire, Scotland. The River Tummel is unlike any other in the country . The River Bugging experience will get you working together with our guide, who will help you navigate the beautiful deep pools, down through technical rapids such as 'Zig-Zag' and 'Sharks Tooth', and to the final ‘pièce de résistance’: a waterfall drop into the mystical Loch Faskally where we float away from the falls towards home.
