Lat & Long: N57.372744,W-5.810625
Tides: Tide tables Best dive at High tide.
Depth: Up to 30m
Site entry/exit: Easy entry down the left side of the jetty at High Water or there is a path leading in about 100 M North which is accessible at all states. It just means lugging the kit a bit further, then a shallow 100m at the start/end of the dive.
Underwater directions: Keep the wall on your right and head South. There is a fair bit of life on the wall with literally hundreds of Spider Crabs. The wall peters out past the jetty and becomes a sandy, silty slope down to about 30 metres but scallops are a possibility. We didn't see much else in the silt other than a small Nudi.
Alternatively, cross to the East side where there is a more dramatic wall when you head South beyond the Jetty. We only went down to 24m due to my buddy’s air but we were not at the bottom
Site Hazards: Slippy rocks at low – mid tide. Otherwise the site is suitable for training. No currents experienced on several dives between Low water and final dive one hour before HW

Other comments: Quite a trek but, if you are in the area, it's well worth the effort
