Wild swimming on Loch Ken has taken off in the last few years and Galloway Activity Centre (GAC) is proud to host our annual Loch Ken Wild Swim on 12th September 2020 in aid of Barnados Scotland.  This event will run throughout the day with options to enter the 1km, 2km or 4km swims.  There will be a kids 100 metre swim which includes swimming over or around some of the obstacles on the GAC waterpark.

The clean, clear waters of Loch Ken are ideal for wild swimming. The water is SEPA tested and as part of the hydro electric scheme is regularly filled with fresh water from the Rhinns of Kells. The temperature is usually between 14-15 degrees Celcius and wetsuits are compulsory (£2.50 to hire a from GAC)

The centre works in partnership with Barnardos Scotland and swimmers can make an optional donation to this very worthy cause. We're also encouraging anyone taking part to try and raise extra money by asking for sponsorship. If this is of interest to anyone then please get in touch and we can get you a sponsorship form.

Entry fees include a branded T shirt, hot drink and hot dog after the swim.  (T-Shirts are only available for bookings made up until Monday 31st August)

You will receive a final confimation email in the week of the event which will contain a confirmed route map and schedule for the day. The likely route will be a 1km circuit and the likely programme of events is as follows:

09:00 registration opens

10:00 - 1km swim

11:15 - 2km swim

13:00 - kids splash session
