Join us for this day of open water swimming in Loch Lomond (Rowardennan), delivered by Kate from Swim Freedom!

About this event

Get Back OUT has partnered up with Kate from Swim Freedom to deliver a day of Introduction to Open Water Swimming, by the Rowardennan Lodge on Loch Lomond. The day will also include some lunch (provided) and time to socialise!

Don't worry if you've never been open water swimming, as this activity is tailored to beginners. Likewise, you are welcome to come along if you have some experience and just want an excuse to get back in the water!

It is a requirement for this activity that you know how to swim. Only open for LGBTIQ+ people aged 18+ who stay within the Greater Glasgow area.

This will be a full day activity, meeting outside the LEAP office in the city centre for 9:30am departure by minibus. We should arrive back in the city centre between 5:30-6pm that evening.

You will be provided with a wetsuit and swimming cap on the day, but please see the kit list below for items you need to bring with you.

Kit list:

  • Swimming costume/trunks (something to swim in)
  • Towel(s)
  • Warm layers of clothing & raincoat
  • Goggles (claim this as an expense and get refunded, if you are buying specifically for this event)

There are 15 spaces available for this event. If you sign-up but can no longer attend, please cancel your ticket, or email me at to let me know.

All the best,
