The Loony Dook continues its New Year’s Day tradition at South Queensferry, at 2.15pm on the 1st of January 2020. 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 led by The Noise Committee drummers 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 points along the route or down on the beach.
