A local group of wild swimmers took to the waters for one hundred days to raise money for charities close to their hearts.

Seonaid Cameron is one of six people who took part in a one-hundred-day challenge that raised more than £2,400 for a good cause.

Wild swimming group '9 am Nutters' went to Duck Bay in Loch Lomond every morning at 7am starting in mid-January this year.

Battling all weathers the six women strived to raise money for two causes close to the group.

They gave £1,400 to Alzheimer Scotland having had close ties with relatives who have suffered from the condition. 

The remaining £1,000 went to the ICU department in the Royal Alexandria Hospital as group member Karen Wilson's daughter was treated there after becoming very unwell with COVID.

Seonaid from Alexandria has been wild swimming for six years and says at times the weather made the feat difficult.

The 50-year-old said: "Every swim was different because of the weather.  We had it all: wind, rain and hail. The winter was challenging.

"I'm not keen on normal swimming. If I go to Duck Bay with a sorehead it'll disappear. It is very good for you.

"The support we have received boosted our morale and we've made a lot of new friends."

The 9am Nutters say they will take a break for now but have plans to do the challenge again next year.
