Scotland has many outstanding Scuba Diving sites where you can plan your next weekend or holiday trip.
Diving has been around for hundreds if not thousands of years. Firstly this was in the form of free diving without any apparatus. Using hollow reeds as a snorkel and primitive goggles to create clearer underwater vision followed this.
For the highly active there are a wide range of pursuits from Horse riding and Pony trekking, surfing, sail boarding, land yachting, kites & kite buggying, sub-aqua diving and sailing, places to climb and walk. For the less active and just in need of a rest the beaches are amazing and often you will find one all to yourself.
The magnificent coastline is dotted with white-sand beaches and the unspoilt waters are perfect for diving, windsurfing and surfing. Walking possibilities are legion, with Foinaven and Ben Hope – Scotland’s most northerly Munro – within easy striking distance. Other highlights include a visit to Smoo Cave, a round of golf at the village’s nine-hole course and a trip through eerie wilderness to Cape Wrath lighthouse and the Clo Mor cliffs, the highest on mainland Britain.
Boat diving on our Super Rib’s to all of the local wrecks and scenic dive sites is available daily throughout the season for larger groups or on day or multiple day basis. Large site on the waters edge with good and ample car parking with storage for trailers, changing facilities and gratis slipway pontoon and mooring availability for customers. Just a mile or so out of Oban the eating houses are close by.
