On this trip, we guide you from the little village of Struy down river into the spectacular Aigas Gorge amphitheatre to look for ospreys, otter, deer and lots of other local inhabitants.  The journey has some straightforward grade one rapids en route as it winds its way through the countryside.  As you pass by the river island (Eilean Aigas), the river current slowsto almost a stand-still giving you more time to take in the ambience of the gorge.
