Approaching the Skerries

So I'm having a look over the charts and whatnot at things we could do when the weather improves, and I've always fancied the Skerries. The question is how best to approach the lagoon below the lighthouse?

B looks best, but I think I can see something lurking below the surface? It doesn't show on my Admiralty chart but can any of the locals offer some advice?

Just avoid LWS & you'll be fine. If you use route B, keep tucked in to the lighthouse side & keep an eye on the sounder.
