Tides: Tide tables Only dive slack water or when the currents are heading south.
Site entry/exit: Get fully kitted up and walk along the small path under the cliff to the jump entry into a gully from 2m into 4m, (high tide) and exit in the bay and Harbour. (see pictures below) The last ten meters of the path is tricky over jagged rocks.
Underwater directions: Head out of the gully and turn left heading south hugging the shoreline in and out all of the gully's till you reach the beach before the harbour. Don't go past the harbour as the currents get stronger due to the channelling between the Island and the shore.
Site Hazards: Tricky walk along a small path under the cliff, and sometimes you have to cancel the dive because of big swells. (dive Easdale quarry instead)
Nearest Public phone: In the pub at the quarry.

Other comments: Take care walking along the small path, and don't dive if there is too big a swell into the gullies. This is an interesting dive because of the amount if different sea life seen here.
