White Water Rafting is one of the most exciting river activities ever created. White water rafts are engineered to handle everything the river can throw at them. You and your team will work with one of our experienced guides to navigate the raging rapids. The rapids come in a grade from 1 (flat, scenic) to 5 (high adventure/ risk) .
Splash River Tummel White Water Rafting is situated just north of Pitlochry in Highland Perthshire Scotland. The River Tummel is like no other in Scotland. The rafting experience will get you working together with our guide. You need to guide the raft from the beautiful deep pools, down through technical rapids such as ‘Zig-Zag’ and ‘Sharks Tooth’.
The main part of the trip is Grade II/III. This prepares you for the final piece de la resistance: a two-tier, 18 foot drop (Grade IV) rapid. This drops into the mystical Loch Faskally where we float away from the falls towards home reflecting on the rivers power’s and beauty.
The River Tummel White Water Rafting season starts each year on the first weekend of June. It then runs every weekend until the end of Sept.

Judging by the amount of reviews, positive comments and recommendations we receive after each rafting trip we think you love it as well!
