HUNDREDS of people are expected head to New Cumnock for a midnight swim.

Eager swimmers are ready to enjoy a ‘Douk In The Dark’ as Scotland’s only fresh water swimming pool keeps its doors open late.

Visitors can enjoy the 30-degree heated pool under the stars for under a tenner on Saturday, October 26 till midnight.

There will also be drinks on offer at the quirky event.

Mary Clapperton, duty officer at New Cumnock Swimming Pool, said: “When you think of Scotland, one of the last things that would spring to mind would be swimming outdoors in the dark.

“However, New Cumnock is home to a 30-degree heated pool which makes it the perfect venue for our popular Doukin’ In The Dark events.”

“Tickets for the event cost just £5 per person and include a hot or soft drink.

“They can be purchased from the swimming pool or from Dumfries House.”

Sessions run from 9pm until midnight and include an optional aqua gym class from 10-10.45pm. (Adults only.)

Book via or reserve your place in person at the pool.
