Dive Report: 1/1/12 Downunder About the only dive site between Durness and Wick I would not rave about. Only did one dive. Looking in the logbook, we went straight out from the pier which went onto sand. Featureless, spotted a few sole, dogfish and the occasional crab. Max depth 14m. Turned right, parallel to the shore towards the cliffs, still featureless sand. Came in closer to the shore, boulders and rock slope covered by a thick kelp park between 7-12m. Urchins, spidercrabs, a few nudibranch and some schooling fish at the rock/sand junction. The junction was the only interesting part of our dive. Might be some sort of interesting feature/life around towards the cliffs, but we did not cover a large distance
