Kayaking in Scotland – Loch of Clunie

Loch of Clunie

Tay Country, Perthshire

Explore a true gem of Perthshire. Loch of Clunie also known as Clunie Loch is located between Dunkeld and Blairgowrie. This small but picturesque venue offers superb scenery, interesting wildlife experience and it’s full of amazing historic sites.
A great location to sit, relax and kayak.

On the guided tour with Outdoor Explore you will be shown the best parts of this loch. Several historic buildings, an island or two and plenty of stories are waiting for you here. On our previous trips here we did see the occasional osprey, red kites, kingfishers, beavers, herons and buzzards. The site is often visited by swimmers, canoeists, SUP users and fishermen. An interesting venue, worth exploring all year round. A great place to try night kayaking in the Autumn and winter months.
