Our story

It always starts with an idea, (it really must stop!). Hopefully you'll all support us in our 1st outdoor non competitive swim.

The swim is up in Inverness at the end of June and we will be swimming across the Beauly firth, covering an approx distance 1200m (tidal) and the water be a refreshing 11'c + 🤦‍♀️,

Our preparation consists of less cake more swimming... (easier said than done).

Believe it or not lots of personal goals to achieve for us on this journey- From fears of dark waters and what lies beneath, to swimmimg longer distances in a wetsuit, to swimming in a straight line, to concentrate and not talk for more than 10 minutes! . We will try and make a wee blog, no promise mind, might just be a collage of photos.

All donations are going to a worthy local charities that support nature and outdoor programmes. (we've paid our own entrance fees).

All donations greatly received


Thank you for checking out our page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Àban Outdoor Ltd.

Sharron and Sally tested out Foxlake near Dunbar last nighg. "Not too bad, warmer than the sea, changing rooms and nice benches to sit by the lake after to drink your tea. 3 laps was 1200m"....

Bit more training for Kessock swim tonight...bit of cover from the wind at the other end of the bay....can't say I'm a fan of off-shore winds and it whipping the water against my face but good practice. Nice to have a supportive chat with a lovely guy who'd noticed us too.

Hoping the wind calms down ready for Sunday nights 'flower moon swim' at coldingham

Kessock swim prep going well, 1 of us managed to do 600m at Coldingham, whilst the other 2 was scoffing pie and mash, another 1 managed a personal best of not talking for a whole 30 minutes in a row and another was best in class and signed up for triathlon swim training...... 🤣 tonight's swim I feel did hit 1km 🤞
