Scuba Diving in Skye, Scotland

Dive Site: Flossnan

Location: Near Idrigill Point, Isle of Skye, Scotland

Description: Wall dive

Depth: 20 metres (65 feet)

Visibility: 10 metres (30 feet)

Rating: ****

A picturesque wall covered in dead man's fingers, sea urchins and sponges with kelp in the upper levels. In cracks in the rocks lobsters, edible crabs and velvet swimming crabs hide and can be seen without too much hunting around. Wrasse and pollack swim in and out of the reef and I found a jellyfish stuck in amongst the kelp fronds. Dahlia anemones and cup corals also decorate the rocks. We dived here on a cloudy day but if you were lucky enough to get the sun out I expect this reef would be awash with colour due to the variety of life and the clear water.
