One of Scotland's most outstanding athletes with numerous world-first swims to her credit including the Pentland Firth, from Orkney to Mainland Scotland, and The Minch from the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides back to the Mainland.

Colleen talks in detail about those swims, growing up in a family where swimming the English Channel was a normal, almost required, thing to do.  Plus she gives swimming tips for dealing with jellyfish.
