Swimming Holidays in Scotland

Scotland is the perfect setting for the swimmer who love the crisp, refreshing waters of the Lochs. Dive in with us as we set sail in search of the best swimming holidays in the North of the British Isles.

For the trekker who loves to get stuck in, join us aboard the Lady of Avenel, a traditional Brigantine square rigged ship measuring at over 100ft. While onboard you'll get to explore our Isle of Skye and the Small Isles trip, and experience the combination of freshwater loch swimming, coastal swims and island crossings, spending the entirety of your week living aboard the seas. And to challenge yourself, try a crossing of the Gulf of Corryvreckan, where we traverse the third largest whirlpool in the world.

Gulf of Corryvreckan - Scotland

Take part in one of Scotland’s most iconic open water swims across the fabled Gulf of Corryvreckan. Situated to the north of Jura and lying just off Scarba’s southern shore, the Gulf is transformed into a whirlpool during both flood and ebb tides as the sea surrounds a pinnacle that rises to within 30 metres of the surface.
