Insta Live Series - Calum Maclean


Calum Maclean is a photographer, filmmaker and presenter. In his spare time, he's one of the countries craziest outdoor swimmers. I met Calum on a zoom call during one of the World in a day rides, he came on to talk about some interesting challenges he had set himself during lockdown. He's a super interesting guy with a passion for the outdoors and wild places, we spoke about his lockdown antics, what it takes to be an outdoor swimmer and his native language Gaelic. During this live, Calum was on the very still shores of Loch Ness, where he was joined by a few midges to help him out. He braved the midges and my questions, and to finish off he took us for a dip in the world famous Loch. Below are where to find Calum and a link to a couple of his cracking videos with BBC - The Social.

He's just about to launch a brand new website, so details to follow on that soon.


Here's the link to his water temperature film :

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did chatting to him. We are hatching plans to swim the length of Loch Ness. I'd just like to point out, I'm a terrible swimmer!
