Join us at Drygate Brewing Co for an interactive evening packed with a talk from Gilly McArthur and Calum Maclean.
Gilly is An illustrator, climber and wild swimmer, Gilly is a director of the Womens Trad Festival. She is also a cold water swim coach, ice seeker and founder of Blue Mind Men - a cold water swim club for men and friends.
Originally from the North of Scotland, Gilly now lives in Cumbria where she is partial to an iced over tarn to swim in and loves helping other find their space in the outdoors.
Much of Gilly's work is strongly tied into mental wellbeing and she has written numerous articles, participated in podcasts, films and graced the main stage at a number of high-profile outdoor events in order to passionately share cold water swimming with a broader audience.
Calum Maclean is a writer, broadcaster and film-maker. Best known for his social media videos and BBC ALBA series Dhan Uisge, in which he shares his love for swimming in cold water, and looking beyond the obvious aspects of outdoor adventure. An ambassador for the Outdoor Swimming Society, Calum is author of 1001 Outdoor Swimming Tips. A native Gaelic-speaker, Calum also brings the language into his work, so that people can learn more about it.
In 2021, Calum and Jenny Graham walked 'The Longest Line' - walking for 78km through the Cairngorms National Park, the longest straight-line distance between paved roads in mainland Britain. Following the 4 day journey of seemingly constant up-and-down heather-covered slopes and staring at a GPS screen, Calum swore off straight-line endurance walking. Unsurprisingly, no-one else has yet attempted to replicate the journey.
