Sauna & Wild Swimming

Dive in to Dunskey

Beneficial for mental and physical health, wild swimming in Dunskey’s private loch is an experience second to none. Float along at your own leisure, race your friends to the bottom, or simply dip your toes in at the water’s edge.

When taking breaks from splashing about, find warmth and restoration inside our sustainable log-burning sauna. Once cozy inside, turn the sauna into a relaxing oasis with a selection of Dunskey’s very own botanical oils, which you may take with you upon departure.

Wear comfy waterproof shoes and remember to bring the flashlight from your lodge. On cold weather days, we advise you pack water-repellant layers, as well as some additional courage.
