Unspoken Water

A filmic ode to the Scottish Highlands

Unspoken Water delves into the exquisite beauty of the Scottish Highlands, gently depicting the rejuvenating effects nature, in particular cold water swimming, can have on both body and mind. “It is almost like a therapy. Cold water hits your neck, makes you feel more alive,” says Calum Maclean, who features in the film. The film, which has been screened at numerous festivals, including the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival and the Aviemore Adventure Film Festival, is likely to convince even the most hesitant of swimmers, that taking a dip in an ice-cold loch or the sea, though challenging, is always a good idea. Why? In the words of Maclean: “You are coming out a better version of yourself.”
