A good forecast and the need to test an auxiliary outboard found us launching at Troon Marina last Sunday, to head out into Ayr Bay to dive the wreck of the motor coaster Glen Shiel, followed by the wreck of the cargo steamer SS Ahdeek off Troon.
We headed south on flat calm seas with blue sky and sunshine, something we’ve not seen too often so far this year. The first dive was on the Glen Shiel that sank off Ayr in June 1973, more details on her loss can be found here. Conditions underwater were good with high ambient light and 6-8 metres visibility. Below are a few pictures from the dive.
