    How much does it cost?
    The entry price is £10 for adults. Family tickets are available. Towel hire is included. Glasgow Continental is free to Arlington Baths Club members.
    The lockers take 20p & £1 coins.
    Who can attend?
    Holders of the Glasgow Continental Card, members of The Scottish Outdoor Club (SOC), British Naturism (BN) and other recognised naturist organisations including INF-FNI card holders. Members of Arlington Baths Club can attend free.
    Visitors, guests and newcomers to the swim are welcome. If you do not hold one of the cards above, you must bring photo ID and proof of address eg passport & utility bill; the EU photo-driving licence covers both.
    After your first time, you will need to apply for a Glasgow Continental card for return visits. From 2017, members of BN who attend the swim regularly will be asked to join Glasgow Continental to help contribute towards running costs.
    On your first visit, the Arlington Baths Club will ask you to complete a health declaration.
    Do I need to be naked?
    There is an expectation that adults will be nude when swimming. Children can wear a swimming costume if they wish – although most don’t. You can wear a towel in the other facilities, but again most people don’t.
    Will there be other women there?
    Yes! Many women attend the swim, either on their own or with friends or family. Just come along - you will receive a warm welcome. Alternatively, contact our Welcoming Women co-ordinator Juliette, email: sanerpro@bn.org.uk
    What is the etiquette?
    Shower before entering the pool and after using the hot rooms / sauna.
    Towels are provided for drying and sitting/lying on.
    To preserve others' privacy, phones and photography are not allowed.
    Tea, coffee, hot chocolate & biscuits, Sunday newspapers and information about naturist events and holidays are available in the upstairs lounge (complimentary, but donations always welcome). Members meet there for a blether and to catch up on the latest news.
    We need to leave the building by 9.00pm.
    I like Glasgow Continental, how can I start coming regularly?
    Next time you come, bring your ID and one passport-style photograph 15 minutes before the swim starts and you can apply for the Glasgow Continental Card. The card runs April to March and costs £5 per year for adults, £3 for young adults, U26, and fulltime students (proof of age/student status required).
    FT students & U26 may gain entry to the swim for £7 each time for the first two months of their membership.

    We recommend you apply to join BN at www.bn.org.uk/membership which gives you the quarterly magazine and many other membership benefits for around £35 per year. Your membership helps to support and promote naturism in the UK.

    18 August 2017 00:00 - 20 August 2017 00:00

    Mind, Body and Naturism Weekend at Scottish Outdoor Club
    18 – 20 August 2017
    From the time of the early sun clubs, naturism has been associated with a desire to improve the health of both mind and body through connecting with the natural world.  With it’s stunningly located naturist club at Inchmurrin, an island on Loch Lomond, the Scottish Outdoor Club has always been part of this tradition.
    In August, we will be rekindling this link by offering Soul Moves, a residential Mind and Body weekend which is open to members and non-members alike.
    Delivered by local tai chi teacher and artist Teena Gould, Soul Moves will consist of 4 workshop sessions over the weekend.  Participants will be guided through a series of exercises including simple sitting and meditation; self-massage; tai chi movements including opening and flexing joints and working in pairs on physical connection;  the opportunity in groups or pairs to listen to ourselves and others with an open mind and compassion.
    At other times you can use all the club’s facilities including lounge, self-catering kitchen, sauna, hot showers, miniten court, table tennis or perhaps sunbathe or swim in the loch. There will be time for self-guided practice or (clothed) exploration of the island which boasts wonderful panoramas, a network of paths, shingle strands, woodland, a ruined castle and licensed hotel.
    Accommodation will be in the club house, chalets or camping pitches.  Price per person, including accommodation, workshops plus a meal and social on the Saturday night will be £39 (or £27 camping based on 2 adults sharing). Accompanied children are welcome. Under 5s are free and children aged 5-15 just £5.
    The ferry will leave Balmaha on the Eastern shore of Loch Lomond at 7pm on the Friday evening, returning at 6pm on the Sunday.  Return fare £10 / £4.50 child.
