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 Tay (Aberfeldy , Perthshire) and at Pinkston watersports in Glasgow, Scotland’s only artificial whitewater course for some truly urban adventure. 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.
