About us

Highland Open Water Swim is the brainchild of outdoor enthusiast Jeff Forrester. These set of challenges were developed to enjoy the beautiful environment that we are lucky to live close to in the Highlands of Scotland and hopefully inspire others to try and challenge themselves to start new sport activities. More importantly, the team is keen to use this opportunity to increase awareness to children’s cancer and is raising funds for this worthy cause.

The initial events are planned to get the ball rolling, starting with small but challenging swims and building up to the main event swimming across the Sound of Mull, a busy shipping and fishing corridor of the Highlands.

It is our intention to continue after May 2016, inspiring others to follow and experience some of the most beautiful coastline and see the aquatic life, from common porpoises and bottlenose dolphins, to basking sharks and common grey seals to name but a few.
