If you like more populated parts of the coast how about Eigg, Arran and the Oban area?

Its a 900 mile round trip to get there and back but around Ullapool and the Summer Isles takes some beating you have everthing, white sandy beaches, clear blue sea, loads of islands to explore and its surrounded by mountains.

Playing in the whirlpools of Strangford Lough NI was pretty magical. Snorkelling with the seals of Instrahull and camping on Rathlin Island something to be remembered

What that man said!

Too windy for the planned dive today so went walking instead. Took a few pics of the coast for you all. The highest point on those cliffs is just shy of 2000 feet. Nice cruising in better weather .

Damn sure it does, a lot of Armada kit went down hereabouts*.... I've been dropped off on one of those "beaches" in calm (very calm) WX and there are very deep & interesting caves/fissures running back into the cliff base. There's even a cave you can drive a large RIB into. The diving is mind blowing.

* I haven't found any though
