Wild Swim Scotland – Come and Join Us!

Using “Wild Swimming” to build confidence in open water swimming, ensuring good practice and introducing the health benefits of regular cold water immersion.

What we offer at Wild Swim Scotland

Based in Portobello, Edinburgh, we offer swimming lessons, pool to sea transition and supervised swims at locations around the Lothians. For acclimatised swimmers, we can coordinate day trips to East Lothian, The Pentlands and Central Scotland. Bespoke swims are also available for acclimatised swimmers at locations in other areas including The Trossachs, Isle of Bute on the West Coast and Aviemore in the Cairngorm National Park.

We are delighted to be able to bring you a variety of sessions which aim to accommodate all levels of Wild Swimmer.

  • Introduction to Open Water Dipping (available from late April)
  • Introduction to Open Water Swimming for strong pool swimmers (available from late April)
  • Safety and Risk Assessment Sessions
  • Pool to Sea / Freshwater Transition for strong pool swimmers with little of no Open Water Swim experience but with an event in mind
  • Sea Swimming for Fitness – Challenge
  • Indoor Pool Sessions – Preparing for the Sea (Breaststroke and Front Crawl options) – Members Only (April to June)

If you are new to Cold Water Swimming / Dipping, you will be required to take a number of 1:1 sessions to ensure you are safe to join in our group sessions. We recommend 3 sessions. If you are acclimatised to the Cold Water but would like to join the Membership Support Programme, you will be required to meet with Maree for a shoreside session and a short dip to discuss your needs, prior to joining our group sessions. These sessions are not available during the Winter months and will restart in April 2024 when the water temperatures return to at least 10 degrees.
