Cold water swimming retreat

There are a whole host of benefits to cold water immersion - from the physiological benefits (decreased inflammation, increased immunity) through to the psychological (boosts self-esteem, relieves stress, anxiety and depression).

Join us on our cold-water swimming retreat to enjoy all of these benefits in a safe, supportive environment.  

You will be in the capable hands of our expert guides and coaches Gilly McArthur, Jonathan Cowie and Vicki McCreadie who will coach you into safe cold-water immersion and guide you at some of our beautiful wild-swimming spots.

Our 2 night mini-retreat will take place on the 19th-21st January and the 1st-3rd March and includes overnight accommodation including breakfast, 3 guided swims, pop-up cinema and tea & cake each day

Prices from £880 based on 2 people sharing
