Bobble Hats bobbing around

The Loony Dook at New Year may have whetted your appetite – or maybe lockdown has just encouraged you to get more involved with nature.

There are plenty of well-established groups of sea swimmers at Portobello and surrounding areas. There are so many dippers that you can always find someone to go in with. Each group has its own time, meeting place and stretch of sea it favours. Bobble hats and bikinis may seem an odd combination – but it seems to work for these ladies.
