Rich Scottish marine life draws thousands of adventurous divers from around the words to experience the unforgettable underwater scenery. Holidaymakers may choose between a day-long diving trip, or spend entire weekends exploring submerged miracles. Most diving hotspots are located on the west coast of Scotland, namely around Oban, Mull, and Skye. However, there are also some good diving sites on the east coast, in particular Scapa Flow in Orkney and St. Abbs Voluntary Marine Reserve. Many diving areas are open throughout the year, but the main season is summer.
