Ardtornish Bay

Often a productive scallop dive where gravel and mud lie on the flat gradual seabed gradients of the inner bay. For a good scenic dive, follow the boulder slope inshore from Ardtornish Point towards the bay. Be aware that strong currents can occur around the point and plan any dive here carefully.

A typical Scottish scenic wall dive leading to Ardtornish Bay. Divers can often enjoy great scenery in gin-clear water. Divers often begin at an exposed wall where the tide flows quickly and the rocks are covered with dead men’s fingers and the occasional strand of kelp,then rounded the point at 20m where rocky wall meets gravel and mud on the gradients of the inner bay. The still water in this area is full of scallops, brittlestars and plumose anemones.
