Great Scottish Swim 2018

The Great Scottish Swim in Loch Lomond was part of a series of similar events held across the UK. For the Scottish event it is clear that Loch Lomond was the ideal choice. On a practical nature the infrastructure already in place at Loch Lomond Shores helps tremendously. But the backdrop of Ben Lomond, the loch and the Maid of the Loch steamship really help to make this a special location for the event.  

Sadly the 2018 event, photographed here was the last Great Scottish Swim. A new event has been announced called Go Swim Loch Lomond for 2019. This will be organised by a different company, using the same location. It will be staged on September 7th 2019. Click here for more details on the official website.

Here are some photographs from an exciting event that was made even more dramatic thanks to the Loch Lomond backdrop.

The Maid of the Loch

The Maid of the Loch was the perfect viewing platform for the Great Scottish Swim.


Well done to all of the participants for their successful completion of the various courses of the 2018 Great Scottish Swim. Good luck to the 2019 event - Go Swim Loch Lomond on 7th September. For more information about that event please visit their official website.
