Riverside Swim and Health Centre

Riverside Swim and Health Centre is situated on the promenade of Dunoon, close to the town centre. It is within easy walking distance of the local ferry terminal, with excellent transport links to Gourock, Glasgow and beyond. However, you don’t need to take a ferry to enjoy the facilities here – Dunoon is only a short 1.5hr drive from Glasgow.

With views over the River Clyde to the hills beyond, the facility incorporates a 25 metre, six-lane swimming pool and a teaching pool; a dedicated strength training gym; a health suite with steam room, sauna and spa; and shop – all under one roof!

Swimming Pools

We have two pools for our customers to enjoy: a teaching pool and a main 25m pool.

Our teaching pool is perfect for parents with young children – ideal for splashing around and learning your first strokes!

Our main pool is 25m long, making it a great place for a nice relaxing swim or a more difficult workout. It also caters for a variety of fun activities such as kayaking, water aerobics, children’s fun sessions and much more.

Riverside Pool is also the home of Dunoon Amateur Swimming Club.

As we live in an area that is surrounded by water, swimming is a skill that every child should have the opportunity to learn as it could save a life! Swimming is a great activity that can be enjoyed by anyone at any age and it also allows you to enjoy other water-based activities throughout your life. We offer lessons for the following groups: adult and toddler; rookie lifeguard; children aged 3 and over; and adults.

The Strength Gym

Our new overflow gym, The Strength Gym is kitted out with brilliant free weights and plate-loaded equipment from Life Fitness, offering you more space to workout and keep in shape. This is in addition to our gym at The Queen’s Hall, giving you two gyms to choose from in Dunoon.
