Diving Overview for Scotland
Scotland, best known for its haggis, the Loch Ness Monster, Bagpipes & Kilts, is world renowned for its historical wrecks at Scapa Flow.
Diving opportunities in Scotland are vast and extend around the east, north and west coasts as well as the many islands just off the mainland.
The diving in Scotland can be dependent on weather and Atlantic / North Sea swells during autumn, winter and spring, however there are always dive sites that are protected from the elements.
There are a large number of wreck dives in Scotland, the top attraction being the German war fleet at Scapa Flow, as well as some amazing sea creatures including whales, porpoises, seals, dogfish and octopus.
The visibility ranges from 5 - 20 metres depending on the weather conditions, swells and amount of plankton around. You can expect water temperatures from 4 degrees centigrade in the winter months to 14 degrees between July and September.
