Swim village lockers

For our customers that wish to loan a padlock we can assist with a refundable deposit of £4.50 on the day, please do return with your receipt as this will be required to obtain a refund.

Hourly banded weekend sessions

Due to demand, at weekends (Sat and Sun am), we operate hourly banded sessions for access to our Confidence Pool and Teaching pool for families with young children. During this time, space is very limited in the Teaching Pool due to our Learn to Swim Programme taking place. Bands issued on booking must be worn by all users. This also applies during school holidays as demand increases.

Main pool

  • Recreational public swimming and lane swimming sessions are available in the main pool. Lane swimming, is only available for competent swimmers due to pool depth range of 1.2m–1.8m.
  • Recreational public swimming, when available takes place alongside designated lanes.
  • A main pool booking does not give access to the teaching pool and confidence pool. These must be booked separately to allow us to manage capacities as the teaching pool is in high demand.
  • Individual users can book a lane or recreational session in the main pool up to 7 days in advance online or through the Active Stirling App

Photography is not permitted within the swimming pool or the swimming pool viewing areas of The PEAK.

In the interest of safety and hygiene, please shower before entering the pool, and encourage any children to use the toilet before swimming.

Swim Nappies must be worn by non-toilet trained children. These are available for purchase at reception.

  1. Choose the right lane
    Before you enter the pool, take a look at the lanes and choose one that has swimmers working at the same pace as you.
  2. Wait your turn
    Give swimmers the chance to turn and push off before you enter the lane. Dangle your legs in first to let others know you're there.
  3. Switch lanes if the pace isn't right
    If swimmers are swimming faster or slower than you, be willing to switch to a more suitable lane.
  4. Be respectful of space
    The beauty of public swims is the varying skill levels of swimmers. Always be respectful of others' abilities and allow plenty of personal space.
  5. Leave room when pushing off
    Don't push off right behind another swimmer. Give them a good 5 meters of space first. Likewise, don't push off directly in front of a faster swimmer.
  6. Go with the flow
    Always follow the directional arrows on lane signage. Swim on one side going down the lane and the other side coming back.
  7. Give way
    Rest in the corner of the lane when taking a break so that other swimmers can turn and push off.
  8. Overtaking
    If a swimmer wishes to overtake, let them do so. If the lane is too busy to allow someone to pass, let them overtake when you reach the end of the pool.
  9. Proceed with caution
    Always overtake with caution. Take care to avoid collisions.

A responsible adult over the age of 16 may accompany up to 2 children if one of the children is aged 3 or under. A responsible adult over the age of 16 may accompany 3 children aged between 4 and 7. If a child cannot support themselves in an upright position e.g. by wearing armbands then the adult supervision ratio must be reduced to 1:1. This will apply particularly with new-born babies.

Booking

As well as booking on the app, you can also walk in and book a public or lane swim session in the main pool at The PEAK reception on the day. Please book all teaching and baby pool sessions at The PEAK reception on the day of your swim.
