Colleen Blair MBE
A keen open water swimmer since the age of 7, Colleen Blair became the first person to swim the gruelling North Minch crossing, which runs 25 miles from Orinsay on the Isle of Lewis to Rubha Reidh on the mainland. Colleen completed the crossing in 18 hours and 46 minutes in temperatures as low as 9C.

She was also the first person to swim across the notorious Pentland Firth, from mainland to the Orkney Islands, and swam the length of Loch Ness at the age of 19. She has also swam a ice mile in Loch Tay at Kenmore Beach. She’ll share stories from her many years of open water swimming in Scottish lochs, the sea and further afield.
