SwimWild is all about having fun and building confidence and skills in open water in breathtakingly beautiful parts of Scotland’s Highlands & Islands. We guide swimmers through this amazing landscape and explore it from a new and very different perspective via short wild swims and weekend breaks, to full adventure swimming expeditions and holidays.
At SwimWild we offer coaching for swimmers of all ages and abilities, ranging from complete beginners and those building or regaining their confidence in the water through to detailed video analysis for experienced swimmers who want to hone their technique.
Whether you want to explore remote beaches and mountain lochs, improve your confidence in open water, refine your swimming technique, or have a race or long-distance swim challenge coming up, SwimWild can help you to find your perfect adventure and achieve your dreams!
SwimWild has teamed up with Teemill to create a range of sustainable products made with certified organic fabrics, all printed in the UK in a renewable energy powered factory.
