SwimWild is all about having fun and building confidence and skills in open water in breathtakingly beautiful parts of Scotland’s Highlands & Islands and beyond. 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.
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!
Did you spot photos of Alice with her sledgehammer, breaking the ice to go for a swim in Loch Insh, on the front of The Times, or in many other national newspapers recently? Or maybe you caught a glimpse of her taking BBC Countryfile’s presenter Ellie Harrison for a dip in Loch Voil on their Winter Special programme?
Alice is very proud to be an ambassador for winter swimming and hopes to continue to provide opportunities for people to enjoy the water safely, even in very cold temperatures.
The SwimWild team dived into 2019 with a fabulous New Year’s Day dip at Loch Insh. It wasn’t quite as icy as last year but still an ‘invigorating’ way to start the year!
While lots of things have been going on behind the scenes at SwimWild over the last year, 2019 brings a new website and some exciting new adventures!
