    Walk: Arlington Street off Woodlands Road is located in the Woodlands area of Glasgow, between St George's Cross, Charing Cross and The University of Glasgow.
    Subway: The baths are a short walk from St George's Cross subway station. The Subway closes at 6.10pm on Sundays.

    View Openstreetmap here.
    How much does it cost?
    The entry price is £10 for adults, £7 for U26 and students (evidence of status required). 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 (see below). This also applies to members of BN. The swim card is valid for the year April to March inclusive. Renewals due by April.
    On your first visit, the Arlington Baths Club will ask you to complete a health declaration which will be retained by them.
    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. 
    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, £2 for young adults, U26, and full-time 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.
     
    What other facilities are available?
    Clothed use of the gym (you will need an induction first by the baths staff.)
    Naked Yoga - beginners' and improvers' classes (booking required, additional fee.)

    The Gathering 3rd May to 9th May 2019

    Glenmorag Hotel, Dunoon, Argyll & Bute

    SANER Region are holding the 7th International Naturist Gathering in Scotland, returning to the Glenmorag Hotel on the banks of the Clyde. Once again there is either a weekend break commencing 3pm on Friday 3rd until 10am Monday 6th May, or, a 6 night option departing on Thursday 9th May.
    Accommodation is limited for this highly popular event, open to BN and INF Members only. The Gathering 2018 sold out 4 months in advance!
    The rooms are either doubles or twin bedded and room shares are desirable as the number of single occupancies (hotel surcharge) are strictly limited. Accommodation is on a Dinner, Bed & Breakfast basis and includes all top quality entertainment for the duration of your stay. Nudity will be standard uniform for the duration of your stay though clothes will be necessary for travel to/from some of our popular activities. These include walking in the Argyll forests, naturist swim at the local pool, journey to the Kyles of Bute boat trips. ( for Official photos of The Gathering 2018 go to the Gallery). Scotty MacDoon has requested Hawaiian Shirts for his Welcome Tea Party at 4pm – it reminds him that “The Gathering is time to party “- he's so funny! Kilts and kit off at 5pm Friday. Gatherers departing on Monday can still enjoy the day with us so book late returns!
    Booking for this unique event is now open:
    Prices for the weekend are £155 pp ( sea view supplements of £6).
    Prices for 6 nights are £260 pp ( sea view supplements of £12).
    Please note that the option for the longer stay at just £35 per night extra is exceptionally good value. When considering travel costs for homeward travel on Bank Holiday Monday the 6 night option is highly recommended and gives Gatherers the opportunity to explore the gateway to the highlands. Single supplements are £25 and £55 dependent on length of stay.
    Deposits are £30 pp payable at time of booking (BN / INF membership Number required) with a single final payment due on 28th February 2019 ( irrespective of length of stay).
    Please note that SANER Region has taken a reduction in commission to secure these prices but will not stint on the quality of entertainment.
    To book call Urquhart Travel on 0844 871 7717. (Calls cost 7p per minute so ensure you have your BN Membership number to hand).
    Booking office opening hours are;
    Mon to Fri 8.30am - 7.00pm 
    Sat 8.30am - 4.00pm 
    Sun 10.00am - 4.00pm
    For further information contact thegathering@bn.org.uk 
    Further information is also available on the BN Forum, follow The Gathering 2019 for regular updates.
    Haste ye back!

    SEPTEMBER UPDATE:  PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THERE ARE ONLY A FEW ROOMS AVAILABLE DUE TO EXCEPTIONAL DEMAND.
