Take to the Water

I’m Lynda, and with my husband Gordon, we set up Take to the Water as a Community Interest Company in 2022 based in the Borders. Our purpose is to promote and support wild swimming with an invested interest in the associated health benefits health benefits.

I have combined this with my 20 years experience within HR & Learning and Development and promote Leadership and Teambuilding sessions using water as the stretch challenge or wellbeing component.

Both of us have a deep love for the outdoors and we are passionate about sharing and encouraging everyone to make the most of what nature offers, including the many beautiful bodies of water found across Scotland and beyond. While Gordon likes to walk, I love wild swimming and my mission is to encourage you to ‘take to the water’ too.
