Is that Carrick-a-reed?

There are some interesting under water arches round the back of Rathlin, first one at 27m and next at 45m. The underwater drop off stops at 60m before reversing to form an underwater cliff. Never found the underwater cave though. Shout if you want the marks.

No, damn that wide angle lens! Those cliffs are 600m. It's here:
Thanks German Tourists...

The Rathlin cliffs are a future project - but I'm not "Technical" ()so unlikely to be at 45m+! Thanks though...

The Rathlin area is a good reason to go technical all on its own.
Audacious, Santa Maria and others in the area are mindblowing plus further out on the Justicia... wow! The bow is amazing and Titanic sized!

Well yes, it does fire the imagination - if you've visited on Loyal Watcher or Salutay, that was probably us in those RIBs sliding in for a nosey when you were in the pub .

We didn't have mixed gasses last time I dived the arches, it was all on air

Been a couple of times on LW. It is something else to see folk 70m below you swimming around on a wreck as the vis is just that good.
There are only a few places in the world where you can see proper big guns on a battleship and I have been lucky enough to dive several of them including the Audacious. Seeing 13.5 inch shells scattered around the place is a sight, you don't see it very often.....
I actually stopped diving just over a year ago and sold all the kit to help buy the new RIB. Then I made the mistake of watching videos on Youtube of dives on wrecks that I always wanted to dive and never had a chance to do, now I am saving up to buy a Rebreather to go back and dive them!
Incidentally we are coming over to rathlin for a run in the next few months when we get better weather, will post when and where as we have an offer of accomodation in Campbeltown.

Don't forget that a lot of the lochs are the coast. Some of us are lucky though. It takes me five minutes to get to the first picture, and an hour and a half to get to the second pic. and there's lots of amazing coast in between.

I think you may have nicked one of our beaches in that 2nd pic.
