"I love to wild swim and before I go anywhere now, I find the local wild swimming Facebook page and ask for tips. This has had me swimming in Loch Ken in Galloway and found the best spots on Arran and Jura. People with shared interests want to help so wither its cycling or walking or foodie tips I get initial information from social media. I also talk to locals when I am there which is why in 2021 a local took us over to Scarp from Harris as I said I’d always wanted to visit. As a member of team #scotlandhour on Twitter I also get lots of information from the monthly chats and have made some great friends who also give great tips some of whom I have now met on my visits across Scotland."
