River Tay

Lush forest frenzy makes the movement of water and wildlife sound like some earthly symphony so sophisticated that it can capture stillness and silence inside its intense and rich soundscape. The clarity with which all life can be felt in this place makes even the most urban adventurer want to turn into some prowling jungle cat and go stalking through the trees and brush like a wild animal. Wave your happy tail and take a stroll this acoustic experience of a lifetime. The River Tay is the longest river in Scotland and the seventh-longest in the United Kingdom. It originates in the Highlands and flows down through Strathtay. The river has a variety of names in its upper catchment: for the first few miles the river is known as the River Connonish; then it is called the River Fillan; and then the name changes again to the River Dochart until it flows into Loch Tay at Killin. The highest ever flood at Perth occurred in 1814, when the river rose 7 m above the usual level, partly caused by a blockage of ice under the Smeaton's Bridge. Other severe flood events occurred in 1210 and 1648 when earlier bridges over the Tay at Perth were destroyed.
