EVENT – Loony Dook on New Years Day, South Queensferry

If you’re looking to do something a little unusual on New Years Day, then I suggest having a look at the official site and go for a SWIM !   Yes, you heard me right, swim in Edinburgh in January!   No one ever said we were the sanest of people in Scotland    :)

All Miss Edinburgh’s picture from this years’ event are here to help you with costume ideas.  People wishing to take part should register at the Moorings Lounge, Hopetoun Road, South Queensferry between 9.30am  and 11.30am.  The event kicks off at noon as the parade winds its’ way down the High Street and into the cold icy water!

The event is free to take part, but donations for charity are appreciated.  You can get a hot toddy and some soup afterwards at The Moorings, or why not treat yourself to a good meal at Forth Rail Bistro.

Emergency services are on standby during the event.
