From the authors of Taking the Plunge comes a brilliant new book on the where, when, how and why of wild swimming in Scotland. In this new book, Anna Deacon and Vicky Allan draw on the passion and knowledge of wild swimming communities to create a practical, adventurous and sometimes quirky guide to Scottish wild swimming.

Anna and Vicky share their hard-earned secrets, expertise and spirit of adventure to bring together over a hundred of the most invigorating and rewarding swimming spots around the country. All of these have been tried and tested by swimmers who can be found immersed there regularly, come rain or shine, ice or balmy waters. Throughout, the authors also touch on biosecurity, water access, road access, wild camping and the plastic problem, creating a guide which will help you make the most of your wild swims as well as looking after the environment.

With many of us discovering the wonders of wild swimming for the first time recently, this book is a timely arrival for those ready to dive deeper into the abundance of glorious swimming spots Scotland has to offer. Come along for a joyful evening with Anna and Vicky, as we celebrate this new book and the local wild swimming community.
