Poor weather conditions has postponed the start of the charity swim to St Kilda.

The nine-strong team were due to commence their challenge today (Monday) but due to strong winds this has been delayed until later this week, weather permitting.

With sponsorship from Talk Talk, the team aim to re-attempt the challenge from last year to swim a 60 mile open water stretch from the Dual World Heritage site St Kilda, through the North Atlantic to Harris, in a bid to raise funds for The Leanne Fund, Yorkhill Children’s Charity, The Fishermen’s Mission and Aberlour Child Care Trust.

Keep up to date with the fundraising, training and adventures on the Facebook page ‘The St Kilda Swim 2015’.
