Loch Fyne


Loch Fyne

 

Known for its oysters and the impossibly picturesque town of Inveraray, Loch Fyne is also home to basking sharks, dolphins, seals and otters. Hire a boat from Quebec Marine Services at Inveraray to experience this spectacular body of water and its surroundings, from the traditional Scottish villages dotted around the shores to the Arrochar Alps in the North.

Loch Fyne is typical of west coast sea loch diving, which generally tends to be silty, peaty water. This is serious boat diving territory, being only a short ride from Stallion Rock and Kenmore Point.

Diving is possible all the year round due to the long and sheltered nature of the loch, which is actually a part of an ancient fault line which carries on into the Scottish Highlands. The shores of the loch on the east are in the most part steep sloping, with a fine mud and sandy substrate; the western shores are more steeply sloping and in many cases there is a vertical cliff at the shore line which drops dramatically to more than 20m.

 

Species in Loch Fyne include:

Long spined sea scorpion or bullheads.

Ballan Wrasse

Pollock

Male Cuckoo Wrasse

Squat Lobster

Scallops, Edible crabs.

Dahlia anemones.

Sponges

Sea squirts

Feather starfish

Sunstars

Brittle starfish

Basking sharks frequent the lower stretches of the loch from June to August each year

 

 

Diving in Loch Fyne:

Loch Fyne is a sea loch, rich with fantastic dive sites.  Our team have been based here for over 25 years and have a detailed knowledge of the special sites.  Here are a few examples of the best known dive sites however our team can help you visit many more. 

The SS Arran 111, well broken up on the seabed, the wreck of the Margaret Niven, The Moonlight - a Clyde Puffer, still largely intact and Lapwing - a wrecked paddle steamer is a fantastic dive with so much to see!

One of the best dives is Kenmore Point, just south of Inveraray.  The slope shelves away rapidly and there are scallops, dragonets, large whelks and edible crabs. On the cliff can be found a very rare anemone called Protanthia simplex.

There are few islands in the loch and the most spectacular are located where Loch Fyne narrows near Castle Lachlan. They are called An Oiter (The Shallows); Sgeir an Eirionnaich, which has a shipping buoy on it; Brideagan, which is a small cluster of rocks in shallow water; Eilean Aaghainn, which is the largest of the two main islands, and Eilean Fraoch, which is more a cluster of overlapping volcanic rock rather than an island, but is by far the most spectacular for diving. Collectively they are known as The Minards.
