    Our adventure begins with a day on Loch Tulla and the Upper Orchy, where we'll refresh our skills and get to know each other before indulging in a comfortable evening of great food and drinks at one of our excellent local venues. From there, we'll embark on a thrilling journey down the Rannoch system to the River Tay from Loch Bà, with our team guiding and supporting you every step of the way.
