The River Tay was once a major thoroughfare through the landscape, linking places and communities. Over the last 100 years boat traffic has declined and very few people have the opportunity to get out onto it. We are creating a canoe trail that links Perth with Bridge of Earn and Newburgh. Volunteers and professionals mapped and filmed the route, and gathered all the information paddlers would need to enjoy a trip on the river. We also offered guided trips for those with less experience, or who were interested in finding out more about the history and wildlife of the river.
