Went for a midnight swim by myself after I got stood up by my friends. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Wish they could be more helpful in providing spare swimming trunks after I misplaced mine. Anyhoo, I was lucky enough to remember a pair of pants to swim in. The pool was a nice temp but very salty. I like to recommend to future visitors to remember goggles as I forgot and my eyes were red for days, you could say it looked like pink eye! Despite the embarrassing blunder, I hope to return next summer.

What a great place this is, and well worth a visit. The character of the place is wonderful, a real Victorian feel to it, and so glad it’s been restored. We enjoyed our hour long slot for a swim, and as I was on the waiting list, the staff are great at phoning to let you know you’ve a slot free, as I might’ve missed the email. Great fun and we’ll be back!

Have to book in advance. I took my son to the midnight swim. Well priced and SO much fun. A highlight of our holiday. Pool was an OK temp, slide was open and we had a BALL! Take goggles as it is VERY salty!
Changing facilities a bit run down but clean enough and plenty of space.
Takeaway cafe open for hot chocolate after!

A great experience, my daughter loved it's old fashioned facade, the turnstiles she thought were very cool. We had a really good swim, the weather was good and everyone friendly, glad to see such places doing so well.

Well kept pool, nice and clean. Four lifeguards on duty, and another one for the toddler-splash area.

Lots of free-to-use goggles, inflatables, foam mats and balls.
Towels and bags to buy.

Cafe on site selling chips!!

Hairdryer in the changing rooms.

Our three children (16,14 and 9) enjoyed two hours here after a walk to Dunnotar.

It can be very difficult finding the balance between a family swim and quality swim training. Stonehaven lido never lets us down on our frequent visits from London to North East.

The kids adore the pool. The music from the local radio gives a pleasant holiday atmosphere and they are often dancing and singing to their favourite songs. The chute is out of action for Summer 2019 but this did not dampen their experience.

The pool does not have dedicate swim lanes during day time sessions but their is usually plenty of space for swim lengths. The salt water gives a good swim experience and you can continue your PBs.

It’s a great location in the uncertain Scottish climate. Don’t wait only for the hot summer days. In fact I prefer it in a drizzly day when the conditions change.

A true UK heritage venue and a must for any visitor to the region.

This pool was built in 1934. it is large, so you can have a good swim. in the shallow end the non-swimmers can have a ball. Arm-bands, goggles, balls, floats etc at hand for plenty of fun. The water is so warm, you do not want to come out. Chairs available. Snacks, ice-cream etc available. Loved it. Will be back
