Swimming Pool

Swimming Pool

The main pool measures 25m by 13m.  The pool has a movable floor which allows the depth of one third of the pool to be varied from 0m – 4m.  A wide range of activities takes place from fun sessions for youngsters to Sea Survival Training as well as a wide range of recreational swimming activities.  It is also the base for Swim Western Isles, our local swimming club. 

There is also a kiddies pool featuring Nessie the Friendly Monster, to enable our younger customers to gain water confidence safely.

Swimming Lessons

We currently offer swimming lessons to all children following the Scottish Swimming Curriculum up to Swim Skills Level 3 although further development could be arranged if there was a demand for it.  We also offer swimming lessons for adults.  If you require further information on how to access these lessons, please contact our Reception staff on 01851 822800.  Additional information is also available in the following booklet:
