Loch Long March 2012

On Sunday 11th March 2012 a few of PSAC’s divers headed for a days diving at Loch Long. An early start from Loanhead saw us arrive at The Pitstop around 9:00.
After a short discussion it was decided to head for The Caves.
Being the only people on this site we managed to get parked up no problem and kitted up for dive number one.
Having dived here many times before Mo was designated dive leader and within minutes of entering the loch we were at 29 Mts. Water temperature was not bad at 8 deg but the visibility was not great at about 3Mtrs.
Being early in the season there was not a lot of life but still it got rid of the cob webs and the dive gear was well tested.

Dive No.2 was a little further along the road to a site called The A Frames?? Unlike the first site, the car park was FULL and we ended up parked a little further away from the main site.
The area we chose to dive was being used by PADI trainees, so we had to fin a little way out to find some clearer water. Sutherland had taken his camera and has sent in these pictures.


Well for myself and the others this was the first dives of 2012 and a good chance to start checking all the gear was in good shape for the rest of 2012 and especially SCAPA in May.
