Itinerary

Our paddleboard tour embarks from the tranquil waters just outside our centre.

We’ll navigate towards Moncrieffe Island, traversing its northern channel where nature’s wonders unfold. Keep your eyes peeled for playful otters, swift kingfishers, and industrious beavers. In summer, the banks are adorned with wildflowers, while cooler months offer glimpses of beaver handiwork.

Reaching the tip of the island, you’ll be treated to unparalleled views of Perth’s skyline – a photo opportunity you won’t want to miss.

After a brief pause, we paddle down the island’s south side, soaking in Perth’s rich history, before completing our 7km loop back to base, feeling accomplished and connected to nature.

Location

Our centre is a gem within Perthshire, a mere stone’s throw from the Perth City Centre, on the peaceful banks of the River Tay. Surrounded by the scenic beauty of Kinnoull Hill and the lush countryside, our centre provides not just a launch point for paddleboarding but a retreat into nature.

The centre is located in the heart of Perthshire, a short distance from Perth City Centre. You can find us on the banks of the River Tay, with signage to guide you in from major routes.

We will send you the precise address and postcode upon booking, but here is a summary to help you plan your visit:

  • By Foot: From Perth City Centre, you have two options:
    • Take the scenic riverside walk from Rodney Gardens, noting it can be muddy in winter or a wildflower path in summer. Be mindful of high tide times, as the path isn’t accessible one hour either side of high tide. This path’s conditions can vary.
    • For a firmer path, cross South Street bridge, turn right onto Dundee Road, and follow the pavement directly to the centre.
  •  By Car: Use the postcode provided Sat Nav.
    • From Dundee, take A90, then A85, staying on Dundee Rd and look for brown tourist signs.
    • From Perth, go over South Street bridge, right on Dundee Rd/A85.
    • From Edinburgh, take M90, exit at Junction 11 for A85, and follow the signs.
  • By Bike: A cycle lane is available along Dundee Road, suitable for experienced cyclists. You can also follow the riverside walk, but may need to dismount in places. Secure bike storage is planned for the future.
  • By Bus: Perth City Centre has bus stops about a 40-minute walk from our centre. A limited bus service stops at Walnut Grove, a 5-minute walk away, and an electric bus stop is directly outside our centre. Check Google Maps for the latest schedules and stops with the provided postcode.

How it works: 

  1. Make a booking.
  2. The centre will accept your booking, usually within an hour or two.
  3. Pay for the booking to confirm it.

If you have specific questions, please put them in the comments section, and the centre will answer before you pay.

If something isn't right or if there are no dates available, then send us a message in the live chat.
