Fyne Pioneer, Loch Fyne

Site Name: Maiden Island - Sound of Mull

Dive Site Info

Swim along the wall with the gentle current; dead men's fingers and jewel anemones encrust the rock, and by peering into the crevices divers may see lobsters or even an octopus. The wall opens out onto a sloping sandy sea bed with a few large boulders and scallops dotted about. There is a maximum depth of 30 metres on the north side of the island, with shallower depths of 20 metres on the west and east sides. Friendly seals play in the kelpy shallows, which also play host to nudibranchs and shoals of pollack.
