Speyside Swimming Academy is an accredited STA Swim Star Swim School, based in Aviemore, Scotland. This incredible recognition only enhances our passion and commitment to delivering high quality teaching and coaching.

There is no one size fits all when it comes to learning to swim or refining your technique. We work with swimmers of all ages in a holistic swimmer led approach with the belief that learning to swim is done by our swimmers and not to them.


We are all about inspiring you or your child to take on the next swimming challenge whether that would be to perform a star float or swim the channel!
