Dive reports: Bellbag March 13 I dived it once in 1994 on a calm summer's evening. 46 minutes to 11 metres according to my wee red book. I didn't see any wreckage just crabs 'n' stuff. The access is now harder than it used to be with parking now only on the verge (check google earth). The path you follow around the field now has tall concrete blocks to discourage motorbikes. I'd use a wheelbarrow now if I was determined to go down for a guddle again.
