They Make Them Tough on Tiree

“They make them tough on Tiree!” said Jackie Bird on BBC’s ‘Reporting Scotland’ following a report on school swimming lessons in Loch Bhasapol.

The report stated, “Schoolchildren on the Scottish island of Tiree have overcome the absence of an indoor heated pool by taking swimming lessons in a local loch.”  The swimming lessons were proving popular – once those taking part got over the initial shock of the cold water.  BBC Report
