Scuba Diving in Skye, Scotland

Dive Site: MacLeod's Maidens

Location: Near Idrigill Point, Isle of Skye, Scotland

Description: Pinnacle dive

Depth: 18 metres (60 feet)

Visibility: 8 metres (25 feet)

Rating: *****

A beautiful, picturesque reef loaded with large, inquisitive crawfish. I have never seen a crawfish in UK waters before, so this was a first for me. To go from never having seen one to seeing so many was amazing! They were everywhere, from hiding away in cracks to wandering around in the open, and would come to inspect you. One was studying my glove in detail but it eventually decided it might be better to leave such a big thing alone and jetted off backwards. Aside from the crayfish there were lobsters, congers and loads of crabs. This was easily my favourite dive site in the area.
