The IBA covers the confluence of the Tay and Isla rivers, about 15 km north of Perth. The valley floors in this area support a complex of wetland habitats, including shallow lochs, rivers, pastures and some especially diverse marginal fens. Unusual vegetation-types found along the River Tay include unimproved pasture and riverine shingle-beds. The site is important for breeding raptors and wintering waterbirds. Anser anser are from the Icelandic breeding population.
