About Loony Dook

BE daring

The Loony Dook continues its New Year’s Day tradition at South Queensferry. In the shadow of the Forth Bridges, the dippers in fancy dress, scantily clad or even fully clothed from the night before will brave the chill to raise money for charities while shaking off their Hogmanay hangover.

Dookers will march the length of South Queensferry High Street as part of the Dookers’ Parade before launching themselves into the freezing Firth of Forth.

Spectators are welcome to cheer on the Dookers at various vantage points along the route or down on the beach.

South Queensferry has a variety of pubs, cafes and restaurants, all open on New Year’s Day.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Loony Dook are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
