The River Spey 10km Whisky Swim


18 August 2018, Speyside, Scotland

A new swim for 2018 sees us travelling to the River Spey. The River Spey is a river in the northeast of Scotland. It is the ninth longest river in the United Kingdom and the third longest and fastest-flowing river in Scotland. It is important for salmon fishing and whisky production. This unique swim takes swimmers through the RSPB Insh Marshes nature reserve.


The swim will start in Kingussie, the capital of Badenoch in the Scottish Highlands. It’s a small, lively town right beside the famous river Spey in the midst of the glorious Cairngorms National Park and almost exactly in the centre of Scotland!

Travelling down the River Spey towards Loch Insh through the RSPB Insh Marshes nature reserve there is ample opportunity to encounter some of Scotland’s resident birds and wildlife including ospreys and salmon.

About Outdoor Swimmer

FIT FOR LIFE One of the great things about outdoor swimming is that it can be done by people of all ages. Whether it is wild swimming with your kids or entering races in the super vet category, swimming can be part of your life whatever your age. Our July issue has a Fit for Life theme. As we swim through the ages we look at how we can encourage more young people to swim in the open water, how we should adapt our training as we get older, how one school transformed its swimming lessons and how we can use strength training to combat age-related muscle loss. Plus, we meet swimmers of all ages to discuss their relationship with swimming outdoors.
