Scotland is a great place for wild swimming with countless lochs just waiting to be dived in. There are no laws in the country restricting swimming in these bodies of water so you can take a plunge in pretty much any of them. One of the most accessible and most beautiful destinations for wild swimming is the Isle of Skye, and more specifically Fairy Pools in Glen Brittle. Just south east of the Glen Brittle Forest, the glen follows the River Brittle whose mouth is at Loch Brittle. Its source is the Allt Coir a'Mhadaidh which runs off the Cuillin Mountains and through the gorge to form a series of pools. Some of these are as still as can be while others are agitated by the falling water, but what they all have in common is deep blue water which would not look out of the place in the Indian Ocean. In order to access the site one must drive along mountain road and through the conifers before heading up on foot along a trail which may require some decent footwear. Surrounding the pools are dramatic slate mountains as well as walking and hiking trails. But be warned, temperatures never get warmer than bloody cold!
