Attention: Due to Covid-19 restrictions, limited classes and activities are available at The PEAK. All activities must be pre booked online before you visit. Find out more here.

Zone 1–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.


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.
