    How much does it cost?
    The entry price is £10 for adults. 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).
    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. This also applies to members of BN.
    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.
    The building is locked at 9.30pm, so please aim to leave by 9.15pm.
    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.
