Had a nice run out to Cambpeltown from Largs in the shark infested water of the Clyde today. Only saw three (just off the south tip of Bute) but one of them done us the favour of swimming right under the boat for it's photo shot.
Talking to another chap just back from the same area, reckons he counted eleven.........cracking day out.

They use to be but it's years since I've seen them. The area around Arran seams to be best. I've also seen an orca jump vertically almost it's fully length just off Lochranza, again though, that was probably about twenty years ago.
