Yesterday I was witness to a very impressive achievement. 4 ladies swam the entire length of Loch Ness (23 miles) in a relay without wetsuits! Holy moly I hear you say – indeed! We started the expedition at 5.15am at Fort Augustus and finished just after midnight – over 19 hours of swimming. Water temperature in Loch Ness was around 12 degrees……
The weather started off quite nice but did deteriorate as the afternoon progressed producing some heavy rain and waves on the Loch. I think we might have missed the worst of the English storms but only just. Here are a few photos from the event.

The photo set can be seen here – will add some pictures in the coming days.
Sorry haven’t got any better pictures of the end – it was dark, late and were standing in the wrong place despite the long wait and it all happened rather quickly. A big thanks to all involved – lots of money raised for charity and it has highlighted a great sport in a fabulous part of the country – fancy giving it a go?
