Lat & Long: 56.077944, -5.251083 Google map
Tides: Tide tables
Site entry/exit: Walk down almost directly from the passing place onto the rocks. Enter the water at the large boulders.
Underwater directions: Head straight out to 7m where you will see a boulder slope reef which is slightly steeper on the left side. It is very easy to miss the reef as it’s pretty small and has sand on either side. When you enter at the boulders the steeper side should be on your right hand side as you slowly head down. The reef is like a much smaller version of st cats and shallower. The reef forms like a mound only going as deep as 14m max, and after 14m it seems like it’s only sand after this although I haven’t explored deeper yet. The reef boulders are covered in feather stars with lots of marine life hiding amongst the rock
