Santa Splash returns to Loch Lomond Shores

Wild swimmers and dookers are invited to have a festive splash!

The Santa Splash returns this year to Loch Lomond Shores on Sunday 18th December for those looking for something different to do this festive season.

With the opportunity for hardy wild swimmers to swim safely in Loch Lomond, as well as those who just want to have a fun dook in the loch, the Santa Splash will be a fun and inclusive event for adults and children over 8 years old.

Swimmers and dookers alike are asked to wear some fun and festive headwear to get in the seasonal mood while sing-along Christmas tunes will be playing on the beach.

Commenting on the event, Audrey Calder from Loch Lomond Shores says:

“We’re delighted to welcome back the Santa Splash this year in partnership with Protay Event Timing and Loch Lomond Inchbaggers.  While the event will be great fun, it’s also important that we have event and wild swimming experts to ensure that safety is the number one priority throughout.

“We’ll also have gents and ladies warm changing facilities available to those taking part, so they can combine the Santa Splash with a day out with family or friends here at Loch Lomond Shores to maximise their visit.”

With the water cold at this time of year, swimmers will be required to wear a wet suit, while brave dookers can have a bracing splash in swimsuits if they choose.

The cost to come along and swim is £22 and open to those aged 16 and over, while dookers will pay £11 for adults and £5.50 for children aged 8-15.  This covers the costs of all the safety measures, warm changing facilities on the beach and 10% of each ticket being donated to the Loch Lomond Rescue Boat.

Teaming up with event organisers Protay Event Timing and Loch Lomond Inchbaggers, the event will have electronic safety tags for each participant, experts on hand to provide a safety briefing and event staff – both in canoes on the loch and on the beach throughout.  In addition, there will be male and female heated changing facilities and a free hot drink for participants afterwards.
