What a place for a swim camp. Swam from Bosta beach to Little Bernera, walking over to a wee cove and then back in the sea again, towing my waterproof rucksack behind me. Went for a wander before setting up camp at Chapel Beach. At night I was lying under the milky way, watching the northern lights with the odd shooting star also adding to the enjoyment. In the morning had a pre breakfast skins swim, then packed kit away as the heavy rain was starting, a quick cuppa and it was time to head off swimming from Chapel beach round through the kyles and back to Bosta beach. Life is good with swim camping...been planning this for years and am very thankful to the people who have advised me on kit etc...
Thanks to Lorraine & Iain for getting in touch for a swim when they were up on holiday. Iain took photo's while Lorraine and myself had a splash about in the waves. Great fun at Garry beach. Duckman was saying 12.9 degrees.
Ace time with Donna on a coastal trip out to the Shiants via Seafari. Gordy even let me have a swim through the arch out there. Saw dolphins, eagles and loads more. Photo's and video to follow. ...Really recommend this trip...Video on the right hand side.....21.09.2019
Great afternoon at Coll beach for a dook with visitors Luca & Lily along with Katie & Alison. Lily stayed on shore looking after Alison's Dog. Stayed in for about 15 minutes with some playing in the waves too. Great fun...
Thanks to some of the Lochbroom Wild Swimmers Group for coming out for a swim with me at the Jetty in Ullapool. A Heb Sea Swimmer on tour. Great way to spend some time before catching the ferry back to Stornoway. Nice swim round the boats with Seth, Kathryn and Tom. 16.09.2019
Photo's from the Highland Open Water Swim Corryvreckan Swim event. Really recommend this to swimmers. We were all very well looked after. A great day out with a superb bunch of people and exciting to do, swimming from Jura over to Scarba. Duckman was thrilled to get across! 15.09.2019
My photo's from swims in Loch Awe, Loch Avich, over to Easdale Island and a swim under the Bridge over the Atlantic. Great day out with Colleen Blair and Colin Mackinnon. What a laugh we had....14.09.2019
My photo's from a swim in Loch Oich and around Castle Stalker with swim chum Colin Mackinnon. Scotland really is an awesome place to swim. Duckman enjoyed his holidays...13.09.2019
Great afternoon swimming with Mike Shucksmith at Garry beach while his wife Bridget went for a walk over the bridge to nowhere to take in the views. Mike & myself were stunned by the amount of sand eels around the inlet, thousands of them. Just love open water swimming with the things that you see. Check out the video on the right hand side for a look at the sand eels.
My photo's from swimming with the group of visiting Fife Wild Swimmers at Carnish, Uig, Isle of Lewis. Great choice of beach and one I hadn't been to myself before. Crystal clear waters and loved the swim round the island, thanks for the invite. Duckman was saying 13.7 degrees average. Safe travels home and hope to see you's again in the future...

Great suggestion by Mike & Jayne for a quick skins swim at Coll beach this afternoon. Was good to be back at my training ground again. It's been a while. Won't leave it so long till the next time. Duckman was saying 12.9 degrees average. Think Mike's Crab needs an MOT @ 24 degrees???
Cracking day for an intro to open water swimming lesson with Donnie at Horgabost beach. Duckman was saying 14.2 degrees on average. Click here for website details: SurfLewis & Harris - Open Water Swimming
