There's a comment in Kate Rew's book about swimming on the Isle of Skye. "A local swimmer warns us they're on the usual Scottish temperature range: cold, bastard cold or freezing." I'd like to try out a couple of lochs when I cycle LEJOG, particularly Loch Ness and Loch Lochy (mainly because of its silly name).

Regarding masochism, I read something similar recently: 5 health benefits of cold water swimming. That says: "And if you think that sounds dangerously close to the pleasure/pain barrier then you’re probably right. The two other primary causes for endorphin release are pain and orgasm."
