Wild swimming has been gaining in popularity across Scotland, with an interest in enjoying lochs, lochans and rivers in a whole new way increasing over the past few years as Sots re-embrace the outdoors.

Now, a new online resource is set to launch which offers wild swimming enthusiasts advice and reviews on the best locations for dip.

With people enjoying the physical and mental health benefits of the new pastime, the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) has teamed up with open water coaching and events firm SwimWild to produce the new resource.
