Lochaline on Morvern or Oban harbour
Notes :

The wreck is easy to find as it is situated just off the NorthWest corner of Dearg Sgier. The wreck is lying upright and points down the steep slope (~70 degrees). The stern is covered in plumose anemones and there are plenty of wrasse. It is only really possible to do at slack water. The vis is usually very good (10-12m ++). It is usually buoyed by the charter boats in the area (but not always so be warned!). Watch the weather as the ferocious tides and strong winds can make for some very hairy sea conditions.
