Swimming pools

The swim village at The PEAK has a 25 metre, 6 lane main pool, a teaching pool with height adjustable floor and a baby pool with fun water play features. Swimming is a great way to keep fit and ideal for all ages and abilities.

Covid-19

Due to current Covid-19 restrictions our swimming pool capacity is reduced. We still aim however to provide as many sessions as we possibly can for swimming, as safely as we can.

Main pool — lane swimming
  • Lane swimming, fast, medium or slow sessions available
  • Days/Times: Monday–Sunday various times/sessions
  • Maximum of 4 people per lane per sessions
  • Lanes will be double size
  • Age/ability: Lane swimming is only for competent swimmers age 8yrs+

Please note — only the slow lane is accessible by the pool hoist. The medium lane doesn’t have ladder access.


Teaching pool — Family or group swimming sessions

A maximum of 5 people including children and babies can book a group swim session in our teaching pool.

The teaching pool is split into 3 sections so that families or groups can swim together. If you book this space you can use the confidence pool, but not the main pool.

Please note —

  • Only 2 sections of the teaching pool have ladder access
  • A maximum of 5 people are allowed in the baby pool at one time
  • Social distancing must be adhered to in all areas
  • You must follow Scottish Government guidelines around maximum households interacting and physical distancing
  • You must also adhere to our adult:child ratio

Confidence pool with water features

The confidence pool is currently only available as part of a family or group swimming session in the teaching pool, please see above for details.

Adult:Child ratio
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.
