Wild Swimming

From mountain lochans, to crystal clear seas, The west coast is truly a wild swimming and cold water swimming paradise. Coastal swims exploring small islands, coasteering, river bugging, or a post walk cool off in a crystal clear stream, the choice is yours !

We have a particular reccomendation for our guests which involes a 2hr walk and scramble to Auchtertyre Hill Lochan up the hill opposite Coillemore House. It starts on the paths then requires a scramble up the bank to get to the trig point at the top. The lochan is just before the trig point. Its not massively deep but great for a cool off after the exertion of the hill climb and the views are incredible from an almost negative edge natural pool.
