On Saturday 26th of August we'll be attempting a 7 mile/11km swim down the length of Loch Broom in Scotland. If we're lucky we might be joined in the water by a curious porpoise or seal, as well as blooms of jellyfish. We'll hit the water early in the morning and swim with the tide. We're going to start at Ullapool and swim to the river mouth, close to a church at Clachan, which is symbollic to us because it's where we buried our Grandma Wild in March 2015.
At just 1.5 km long, the low-lying island of Obonjan is a well-kept little jewel, washed by the crystal waters and scattered with luxurious bars and restaurants. There's also plenty of bespoke accommodation, a wellness sanctuary, open-air pool and unique event spaces befitting an arrival of 500 guests each year for the relaxed Obonjan Festival.
