Diver Report Sound of Mull 2017

Sound of Mull 2017

The mixed group of  ten divers and one birder traveled to the wonderfully atmospheric area of the Sound of Mull. The challenge for the divers was to stay dry above the sea. The challenge for Mike King was to find a rare visitor to the Scottish shores from the Americas.

The weather was on the ‘dreak’ side. We had a pleasant mixture of sunshine and few showers. The midges were biting but mainly in the evenings. The evenings were long.

Malcolm of Lochaline charters was our guide and skipper for the week.

We traveled the length of the sound from Lochaline to Tobermory visiting the wrecks of the Breda, Rondo, Hispania, Thesis, Shuna and Pelican. We had the variation in dive sites to visit wall and Loch site at Auliston Wall, the waterfall at Sunart Loch and Calve Island.

The days were made all the better with the lunches prepared by Jools and Jem, our host at the Morvern Lodge at Lochaline our base for the week. The level of cuisine offered for veggies and meat eaters was exemplary. Exactly what a group of divers and a single birder required to complete the days.

Mike certainly traveled huge distances on a daily basis to locate birds around the area. The ferry to Mull from Lochaline was Mike’s early morning calling.

The travel time between dive sites was a wonderful escape between dives. Golden eagles with there young around a nest, sittings of dolphins and the wonderful landscape.

Thanks to all those who joined in the trip and those whom made it a joy.
