Very popular Loch Long dive site and easy to see why. The shore access is particularly good, especially when compared to some other sites in the area (i.e. Twin Piers or The Caves). Parking is available further along the road or you can pull in near the dive site (again, beware the traffic on the road at this site).
Follow the rocks from the shore out and down to 6m, turn left and travel parallel to the shore working your way down to 16-20m to meet the bottom of the first reef. From here either start working your way along the reef or head down to the second reef. A good boulder reef for finding Conger Eels, Edible Crabs, Balin Wrasse, the occasional Lobster and the usual sea loch creatures (squat lobsters, hermits, velvet swimming crabs, starfish etc.). Rocks are covered in peacock worms, sea squirts, plumrose anemones and sea loch anemones.
