Gather's Creation Myth

Gather's Creation Myth

The outdoors meant everything to me for a long time growing up, until I lost my way. Now I’m back, at somewhere past 40, and I’m gutted at what I missed out on. It drives my passion for helping others find happiness and contentment in the outdoors.

Our swims have taken us to the maelstroms of the Arctic Circle, tropical rivers of Venezuela, pristine beaches of the Philippines and emerald pools of the Himalayas, but it all started here in the UK. You don’t need to leave these isles to find absolutely breathtaking swims.

Bothy beauty

Bothy beauty

The peace and quiet, isolation and beautiful landscapes are fantastic for both body and mind. Being able to use a Bothy shelter in an amazing location, at no cost to you, is an extraordinary experience. I can’t recommend it enough.
