Fyne Pioneer, Loch Fyne

Site Name: Kenmore Point - Loch Fyne

Dive Site Info

Kenmore Point is a rocky promontory with vertical wall faces on the left and right side of it. The vertical cliffs drop to a mud slope at 25m. The slope shelves away rapidly to 50m.


The wall is the most interesting part of the dive: starting at 2m, it drops vertically and is cut by several narrow, horizontal fissures. The large walls are the shelter to an array of small marine life. Here you can find the squat lobster (Munida rugosa) and large dahlia anemones (Urticna eques). On the cliff can be seen the Protanthia simplex anemone, extending their tentacles into the glimmering sunlight above. Large brilliantly-coloured sponges, sea squirts, feather starfish and brittle starfish are everywhere. You can also see purple sunstar, peacock worm, edible crabs, whelks and scallops. Fishes include black goby, long spined sea scorpion and dragonets. There is also a gnome garden in a small opening at 22m in the second wall created by the Coatbridge branch of the Scottish Sub Aqua Club.
