Skipper

John Liddiard quotes in ‘Diver’ July 2005, p 73:

"Most experienced divers can pick a reasonable scenic dive off a chart. Just look for any rock, pinnacle, channel or headland with close contours and a bit of current and the chance are it will be worth a look. But that won't necessarily account for all the best scenic sites, as the next one beautifully demonstrates. There is nothing on the chart to indicate anything other than a gentle slope of kelp under the cliffs at Rubh nan Clach (and I have no idea how that is pronounced). In fact, for a mile each way the coast is probably just that. It takes the experience of someone who has been diving Skye for years and systematically exploring, to know just where a group of big scour holes can be found. It's a scenic housing development for all the best marine life, from crawfish to octopus, tastefully landscaped with anemones and dead men's fingers, carefully secluded 3m below a surrounding arboretum of kelp."
