A-Frames

This is a shallow dive on the south side of Loch Long along the A814. The A-frames themselves are the remains of an old concrete structure and lie in approximately 15-20m depth down a shallow slope, which now form an artificial reef habitat for sealochs anemones, peacock fan worms, crabs, nudibranchs and the odd fish.

The rest of the site is essentially sandy mud with some scattered debris, making it a good training site for new divers, as there are few distractions in the shallows although it can get pretty silty. Loch Long is not particularly tidal, but anyone diving here should be aware that there is often a deceptively strong current running below 20m which has caused problems for some in the past.
