Putting wild swimming on the map!
A deserved OS coup for the wonderful wild swimmers of Argyll. And what a photo.
This year all the Ordnance Survey maps are being re-branded with new cover photos and one of these (Jura & Scarba 355) features our very own Lottie Goodlet swimming the Sound of Jura against a backdrop of the famous Paps of Jura. This really puts wild swimming “on the map” in a big way. I can modestly tell you that I took the photo, but that was very easy compared to what Lottie did, swimming several miles across a strongly tidal stretch of water, dangerously close to the greatly-to-be-feared Gulf of Corryvreckan!
The new OS Explorer 1: 25 000 maps with mobile download included are available now.
The new Landranger 1: 50 000 maps will be available early next year.
