Overview

Swim Freedom has partnered up with Get Back OUT to deliver a day of Introduction to Open Water Swimming, by the Rowardennan Lodge on Loch Lomond. The day will also include some lunch (provided) and time to socialise!
This activity is tailored to beginners but it is a requirement for this activity that you know how to swim. Likewise, you are welcome to come along if you have some experience and just want an excuse to get back in the water!

You will be provided with a wetsuit and a Swim Freedom swimming hat on the day.
