Straddling the English/Scottish border, the waters between Seahouses in Northumberland and the Scottish town of North Berwick are one of the finest diving areas in the UK and one we've wanted to visit for many years.

From the Farne Islands' seals and underwater cliffs in the south to the wrecks of steam-driven submarines off the Isle of May in the north, not forgetting Eyemouth's famous deep wrecks and the scenic masterpieces of St Abbs Head in between, the area's volcanic past has combined with the maritime casualties of war and weather to create an amazing variety of dive sites. In short, this is truly a "coast for all divers".

In early September 2012 a group of divers loosely connected with Southsea SAC spent a week based in the pretty port of Eyemouth experiencing it all for themselves.
