Notable Swims List

A personal list of notable swims completed by date.

Early years saw me build confidence and distance by swimming in small events; and in later years the mid-distance events have been a fundamental part of training for the big swims.  Cold winter swims are fun.

The bulk of distance training is now completed in Loch Ness, Loch Morlich, Loch Achilty and the Moray Firth.  I typically avoid the overcrowded swimming pool sometimes available for people to train in.  Still love the fun friendly adventure swims too.
