The Loony Dook
The Loony Dook
The Loony Dook is an annual event that takes place on the 1st of January each year. Up to 600 hardy 'loons' take to the waters of the River Forth for a 'dook' that might last from a few seconds up to many minutes. A good deal of money is raised for charity and a good time is had by all. Volunteers from the RNLI can be seen in the water in case of any mishaps. The Forth Rail Bridge is visible in the background.
