About Us

Drumsheugh is one of the oldest and finest private swimming clubs in Britain


We are housed in rather splendid Victorian premises just by the Dean Bridge and we offer our Members a truly unique environment in which to exercise and relax in surroundings that have a very special, and very soothing calm. We have gone to great lengths to make it so. And we plan to keep it that way.

Drumsheugh is a friendly club and members socialise as well as swim. Many members have swum at Drumsheugh for most of their lives and membership spans three generations. New members are always welcome. One aim of the club is to promote interest in and enjoyment of swimming. Classes are available for all ages and stages from small children to ‘adult improvers’. Other classes are organised to meet members’ needs and include water aerobics and fitness training and yoga in the gym.

We believe that our Club should keep alive the spirit of swimming – in surroundings that are scrupulously clean (we believe we offer the cleanest water in the city) but which are far removed from the noise that city life has to offer.

The atmosphere here is intensely calm. We go out of our way to make sure that the Club meets the needs of its members having to go to greater lengths to meet the needs of the Club. We offer members individual poolside changing cubicles for hanging their clothes, permanent personal lockers and freshly laundered towels. Members can drop in at any time, as we wash and dry their costumes after every visit. We also have a comprehensive range of health and fitness facilities.

We recruit the best possible staff, who do their utmost to know all our Members names. We believe that cheerful, well mannered staff add immensely to what we have to offer. From the moment our Members arrive, to the moment they leave, they know that they have been in a very special little world that has been a well loved, well kept secret in Edinburgh since 1882.

In short, we believe that the lengths we go to give our members more.
