There’s huge variety in what you can see in the water around Skye; one day you might be immersed in a waving forest of kelp, another might find you deep in the darkness of a sea loch. 

Anybody that spends a bit of time here at Otter Lodge is bound to notice that diving is a big part of our life. The evidence is everywhere; from drysuits hanging out to dry to pictures of unusual sea creatures in our hallway. Skye might not be up there with the Great Barrier Reef as one of the world’s most popular diving destinations, but with a bit of exploring it’s amazing what you can find here. We even have wrecks; the HMS Napier offers interesting and accessible boat diving just up the road, near Kyleakin.
