To celebrate a new book about wild swimming, swim fans were encouraged to give their costumes a creepy makeover for a ‘Spooktacular Swim’ at Portobello Beach on Halloween.

The focus for the book is placed on sustainability, responsible tourism and community building across Scotland and showcases over a hundred of the most invigorating and rewarding wild swim spots around the country.
