I’m delighted to say, this Thursday on BBC ALBA starts my 10-part series of shorts on outdoor swimming. Come and learn why I do it, see some of the best – and weirdest – places to swim in Scotland and ENJOY my terrible puns! Subtitled for all, and you can increase your brain by learning yourself some Gaelic 😀. Also iPlayer after, cos who watches TV anyway 😂. Thursday, 22.30, BBC ALBA
