Dive Site Info

Eilean na h-Eairne East Reef comprises of a rocky slope down to about 25m with gulleys covered in sand splitting the rock. The kelp forest comes down to about 15m here, partly as a result of the good visibility often found in the Sound of Jura. At the bottom of the rocky slope is a boulder field that is covered in hydroids and bryazoans as well as other larger life. Dead mans fingers are quite common from the strong northerly tide.

When to dive

Eilean na h-Eairne East Reef can be dived at any point during the southerly tide. However it is subject to strong northerly streams resulting in a large range of life.
