Lecknasaide Gairloch, Wester Ross, Highlands of Scotland Colour of Water #088C80

Lecknasaide Gairloch, Wester Ross, Highlands of Scotland #088C80

7c water made it a very cold dive at Lecknasaide, which is also known as Shieldag, near Gairloch in Wester Ross, Highlands of Scotland.

This dive won't be remembered for the temperature, but the seals that came and met us during the dive. Two, maybe three seals followed us on our cold boxing day dive and hung around for a while after we went back to shore. 

There are some incredible places to dive around Torridon and in the highlands of Scotland. This is just one of the many shallow water dive sites which you can get to the bottom in less than 8m of water and spend some time freediving the sea bed in relative safety from the currents and tides of the Minch and the Northern Atlantic.
