TAKING a dip in the Minch to mark the end of one year and the start of another seems to be becoming more popular.

Stornoway Running and Athletics Club (SRAC) took part in their annual Flett Trek in Rheinigidale, Harris on Hogmanay which included a swim in the Minch, while several families braved the waters at Reef Beach in Uig on New Year’s Day.

Lochs resident Sean F O’Drisceoil also took to the sea at Garyvard Slipway.
