Scotlands west coast next week or any footage ?

Well I'm off up to Oban next week with the rib for some diving, anyone else up there next week ? If not do you have any footage of yourselves playing with your trusty steed up there ?

If its ribs on the west coast you are after a search on here will provide plenty of pics.

Also have a search for the "welcome harbour guide" on Google.

Get the ERR website too - oodles of pics on there.

Might be up there next weekend from Craobh. Some of the drift dives round the area are fantastic, Cuan Sound, Falls of Lora or if you have really thick gloves and balls of steel The Grey Dogs.

I never, ever, ever launch at Puffin but when you have a better idea of your plans let me know and if I am out we can maybe meet up out somewhere.
Haven't been out a lot this year so won't be doing anything adventurous....

Lets just say I know the owner and his cloned staff well enough to wish I didn't
They are not the dive operator with the best reputation in Scotland, shall we say.

Now on the other hand Mike Tye at Oban divers I cannot recommend enough.

I launch in Oban so, once up, drop me a line where you are headed and I might come out on the sunday if all goes well.
