Edinburgh Wild Swim Group

  Hello, nature lovers, movers and adventurers! We're excited to bring you some news that's sure to make a splash in your day – the launch of the Made by Movement's Wild Swimming Group. Whether you're a seasoned wild swimmer or a water-loving newbie, this is your invitation to dive into a world of refreshing escapades, tranquil waters, and unforgettable experiences.

 At "Made by Movement," we've always been inspired by the transformative power of movement in nature. From our yoga and Pilates online classes, to the physio clinic, we've encouraged people to reconnect with their bodies and the great outdoors. Now, we're taking that philosophy a step further by introducing our wild swimming group.

What is Wild Swimming?

Wild swimming, often known as open water swimming, is all about immersing yourself in natural bodies of water, such as lakes, rivers, and oceans. It's an exhilarating and grounding experience, an opportunity to escape the everyday hustle and bustle, and an exceptional way to connect with the beauty of nature.

 Our Upcoming Adventures:

Are you curious about our first wild swimming expeditions? Here's a sneak peek at what's coming up:

  • Sunrise Swim at Portobello Beach, Edinburgh: Join us for a magical sunrise swim at Portobello Beach, we will meet in front of The Beach House at 7:15 am Thursday October 26th.

  • Our future swims following the one above are  weekly at Portobello Beach however the day will vary due to weather and resulting sewage outflow when there is big storms (ew). 

How to Get Involved:

To join our wild swimming group, simply join our whats app group  or contact us on our instagram, or email for more information. 

Now that it’s a bit colder some people wear wooly hats, swim gloves:socks however some don’t so it’s up to you ☺️ There is also no length of time you have to stay in for, we usually stay in for 5-10 minutes but a quick dunk is cool!

Quick safety notice as well: wild swimming can be an incredible experience, but as with anything has its risks and with responsible actions we can enjoy it safely that means going in slowly, getting out when you need & ensuring to bring warm clothes, socks, hat for after the swim.


The Made by Movement Wild Swimming Group is all about embracing the elements, feeling the freedom of the water, and immersing yourself in the beauty of the great outdoors. If you're ready to embark on unforgettable aquatic adventures and discover the transformative power of nature, join us on this thrilling journey.
