Dive Sites & Access
Most of the images on the site at present stem from RIB diving, launching from Lamlash pier. There are two good slips here, only affected by very low tides occasionally and on the main slip a heavy swell can sometimes determine a launch or recovery at the more sheltered harbor slip, the other side of the pier. The above gives access to the whole of Lamlash bay and Holy Isle, a host of dive sites within fifteen minutes.
Out of the bay at the North channel, past Hamilton rock, more dive sites along toward Brodick bay. The next slip is at Brodick giving access to the North eastern coastline as far as you wish.
Head out of the South channel across Whiting bay and further around the coastline to Pladda, where the best high density site lies Roroima Reef, southwest of Pladda. This site is very tidal and boat cover is essential. The diving here is worth the trip, in a word memorable both on the top of the reef and the wall itself.
Lochranza has the Ferry Terminal and any launching and recovery here obviously must not interfere with ferry traffic. A new slip has been built at Pirnmill on the west coast which should help in discovering new dive sites in the Kilbrannan Sound.
