Ten Best Open Water Swim Events in Scotland

Apologies if readers of the Sunday Mail were put off their breakfast last weekend by my ugly mug gurning out of Loch Sunart.

But a huge thank you to FionaOutdoors for including two of our three charity swims.  You can download the full article from her website.

The first of these across the Corran Narrows takes place next weekend on 19th March.  Full details at Highland Open Water Swim.

At the last count we had forty swimmers lined up to take part in the Corran Swim and almost as many heading to the Loch Sunart event on 22nd April.  That one is going to be a little special as we hope to turn it into a full weekend of swimming.

The third of the swims was probably a little too 'out-there' to make it into Fiona's top ten list.  If the weather conditions allow it will be sensational.  On 6th May we will swim across the busy shipping channel that is the Sound of Mull.  I did it last year and the sense of exposure was not unlike a classic multi-pitch rock climb.  Here's Fiona's article with grateful thanks - and my photos.
