THE WILDEST RANGE OF RIVERS IN SCOTLAND

RIVER BUGGING IN SCOTLAND​

If you looking for something that resembles an inflatable armchair to whip you through the rapids then this is the one. River Bugging is high energy, adrenaline-fueled excitement. You will see and feel every nook and cranny the river has to offer. Excitement guaranteed!

River Bugging is the latest things to hit the UK shores from New Zealand. The bug is a one person craft that looks like an inflatable armchair!

Splash Rafting runs river bugging trips on the River Tummel (Pitlochry, Perthshire). River Bugs run all year round. We introduced River bugging to Scotland from NZ in 2003. We have the largest fleet of river bugs in the UK.  This means we can take all your group in one session!

River bugs are a great way to play on the river if you want that little bit more excitement. They are ideal for summer river levels.  Splash pioneered river bugging in Scotland, and as such we are the most experienced provider of this fun outdoor activity. We have introduced thousands of Splash guests to this fun activity since 2003.

After receiving expert instruction from our experienced river bug guides, we’ll get you out on the river or on the whitewater course. You will be complete with your webbed gloves and full wetsuit gear, ready to hit the river. We will help you negotiate your own path down the white water rapids.

On every Bugging whitewater trip, we include all equipment required plus a professional experienced guide. A logistics manager on land who is also a very experienced guide. All equipment required which includes over £150 worth of wetsuits, helmets, lifejackets. Transport from our base on and off the river by a professional bus company.

You will be provided with everything you need to bug safely on the River/ white water course. However we do ask you to bring an old pair of shoes to wear  (these will get wet), and your swimwear for underneath your wetsuit. Optional – a non-cotton T-shirt (synthetic materials are best ) for under your wetsuit. Depending on the time of the year warm clothing for before and after your trip.
