Inverness Leisure » Swimming Pools

Inverness Leisure has 2 large swimming pools so that we have something for everyone regardless of whether it is serious lane-swimming in our competition pool or a fun-family day out in our leisure pool.

If it’s just a bit of fun you’re looking for with your friends and family then the leisure pool is the place to go.  With a large wave pool, river with jets and geysers, 3 flume rides and an outdoor (thistle shaped) pool, family-sized spa bath and toddler pool it really is the biggest water-fun in the Highlands.

The competition pool at Inverness Leisure is a fully approved 25 metre by 8 lane swimming pool.  It also has a moveable floor which allows additional benefits to the pool and swimming lesson programme.

With one of the largest swimming lesson programmes in the country, Inverness Leisure’s Swim Team Teach over 2,000 children to swim every week.

If you are looking to relax after your swim, then you can head up to the Health Suite with its steam room, sauna, spa bath and large relaxation area.  Just what you need after a long day…
