Scotland is a country that occupies the northern third of the island of Great Britain.
Scotland is one of the best cold water diving locations in the world and a lot of the popularity is due to the wrecks of the German WW1 High Seas Fleet which were 'scuttled' at Scapa Flow in the Orkney Islands in 1918.
Scotland has now become one of the top ten diving destinations in the world. Although, the main diving hub is at Oban with the large amount of wrecks that are in the islands around the Sound of Mull and this is also, the departure point for those wanting to dive St Kilda (UNESCO World Heritage Site) for some of the finest scenic diving in British waters.
- The Stassa - a 1685 tons 1950's Panamanian freighter which was wrecked in 1966 on passage between Archangel in Russia to Limerick in Ireland and is located just off the Isle of Harris in a remote location, but is well worth the trip.
- The Hispania - at just over 70m long and 1337 tons, it's not particularly large , but it has plenty to occupy several dives and is very popular.
- The Wallachia - a 1724-ton British steamer, built in 1883 and at a length of 259ft. The cargo on board includes chloride (on deck in stone jars), glassware, coal, spirits, beer, building materials. The ship was bound from Glasgow to Trinidad. It is at a depth of 34 metres and is upright and intact.
- MacLeod's Maidens on the Isle of Skye - an amazing, beautiful reef.
