Wild swimming seems to have had a surge in popularity during lockdown with many more people are giving it a go as leisure pools are closed and nature offers the best solutions as our natural outdoor playground. A lot of what I learned served to remind me how to swim whilst staying safe and the science confirmed what I know myself about feeling good after having a dip. I hope that this blog might inspire you to give it a go too, so here is my blog about wild swimming in winter, why it is good for you and how to cope with the cold!
'extreme sea kayaking, wonderful wild camps, amazing mountain biking’
So I started thinking back over the (almost) 20 years I have lived in Argyll and all the adventures I have had, trying to pick out the best and most wonderful experiences to share with you. It took me back to extreme sea kayaking, wonderful wild camps, amazing mountain biking and edge of the world mountain ridges. It makes me feel the wind in my hair, the sun on my skin, the exhilaration of reaching the top, the sheer joy of seeing wildlife and the peacefulness of feeling at one with nature and the sheer delight of a fire in a remote island spot.
