    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.

    The Scottish Outdoor Club is proud to host this special screening of Taryn Brumfitt’s ground breaking social impact documentary Embrace that explores the issue of body image. We were motivated to arrange the event because we believe that naturism has an important role to play in enabling people to feel confident in the body that they have.

    The screening is followed by a short discussion chaired by Paula Larkin, a board member of Document, Glasgow's aclaimed international human rights film festival. Members of the audience are invited to then join us for Body Image Chaat at The Village curry house, Nelson Street, G5 8DZ.

    Book tickets: https://tickets.demand.film/event/1494You

    Embrace is told from the point of view of film maker Taryn as she traverses the globe talking to experts, women in the street and well-known personalities about the alarming rates of body image issues that are seen in people of all body types. In her affable and effervescent style, Taryn bares all (literally) to explore the factors contributing to this problem and seeks to find solutions.

    After 24 months of travelling, interviewing, production and post production Taryn and the Embrace team have created a film that is relevant, relatable, highly engaging – but above all life changing.
    Embrace had its world premiere at the 2016 Sydney Film Festival, where it made it into the festival directors’ top 5 picks and was nominated for the Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Best Documentary.

    The inspiration for EMBRACE came about after Taryn posted an unconventional before-and-after image on the internet in 2013 that sparked an international media frenzy. The image, which embraces body diversity, was seen by over 100 million people worldwide and led to hundreds of interviews and articles. But she soon realized how restrictive 4-minute TV interviews, 800 word articles and 140 characters on Twitter can be. She says "This issue needed a louder voice on a bigger platform, so the idea of creating the documentary EMBRACE was born.” – Embrace Director Taryn Brumfitt

    The film has a rating of 12A. We feel it is suitable for children aged 9 upwards, but that those under 12 years old may need help interpreting the film.

    SANER Region organise a fantastic weekend in the gateway to the Highlands over the May Bank Holiday. The Glenmorag Hotel in Dunoon are once again hosting this popular naked weekend for BN and INF members.
    Arrivals from 3pm on the Friday through to Monday morning when we vacate the hotel. Traditionally we have visited the Argyll Secret Coast on the Monday morning for those fortunate to delay their departure. Fortunate to be able to extend your stay?......
    NOTE: YOU CAN NOW CONSIDER A THREE NIGHT EXTENSION TO THIS EVENT FOR JUST £110 DBB, PP.  
    This is the first time to my knowledge that naturists have the opportunity to stay for seven days (six nights) in a U. K. Hotel au naturel. A first for BN, a first for SANER, and hopefully the first of many textile hotels to see the benefits of our patronage.
    For BN members the weekend event costs just £139.00 per person  with all food and entertainment included. Supplements apply for single occupancy and sea views. The majority of rooms are twin bedded and we ask people to share whenever possible as there are only 72 rooms. There are currently in excess of 80 members booked so don't be disappointed,  book today add the extension in the knowledge it will proceed.
    Although it is possible to remain naked for the whole weekend, include a stroll through Morag's Fairy Glen, you may like to join us at the Riverside Pool or our ramble through the Argyll Forest. Our boat trips through the Kyles of Bute are always well subscribed at just £10 pp. Or maybe you want to explore some of the most beautiful scenery Scotland has to offer.
    Entertainment includes a Casino Royale Night  (Black tie & Bling ), Burns Supper (tartan bow tie, and ladies a tartan sash). This is followed by the traditional Ceilidh and you can dance till you drop to our SANER Disco.
    Twin rooms can be booked through Urquhart Travel for just £30 deposit p.p. and we urge you to do so now to avoid disappointment. Contact Head Office for room share service.
    Contact Julie on 01355 271577 now and follow the SANER thread on the forum for more updates.
