Scotland wild swimming - Loch Melfort Hotel

Corryvreckan Swimming package

Loch Melfort Hotel is delighted to team up with swimming experience experts SwimTrek, giving you the opportunity to take part in one of Scotland’s most iconic open water swims. The Gulf of Corryvreckan (featured in Robson Green’s “wild Swimming” programme) is transformed into a whirlpool during tides – safe to swim across during slack water when the whirlpool is dormant. This challenge is not for the faint-hearted. SwimTrek’s safety escorts will accompany you throughout the duration of the swim. Your trip will be followed by the opportunity to relax in the picturesque hamlet of Craobh Haven – a magical end to your unforgettable adventure.


Package includes:

  • 2-nights en-suite accommodation in a sea-view room
  • £40 per person allowance towards dinner is included each night in either the restaurant or Bistro, giving you the chance to sample the delights of local Argyll produce.
  • Full Scottish breakfast each morning
  • Packed lunch
  • Extra towels to take on your swimming adventure
  • Fully guided swim trip across the Corryvreckan with Swimtrek – approx. 1.5km
  • A list of the best places to go wild swimming in the area

After your wild swimming adventure warm up in the cosy lounge at Loch Melfort Hotel with your favourite dram or a hot chocolate. With stunning views over Asknish Bay and excellent Scottish hospitality, there is no better place to relax and unwind.
