Scuba diving in the Firth of Forth, Scotland

With the wonderful Easter weekend we had in Scotland, I felt so lucky I booked 2 dives in Fife near Edinburgh.  Almost a year after I arrived in Scotland, it was only my 3rd diving trip as I am still struggling with booking more dive trips around Scotland.

Even if the visibility is quite reduced and the water only 6°C, colourful treasures lie on the sea bed of Blae Rock: Spider crabs, Sagartia anemones, Plumose anemones, Hermit crabs and so many starfish and sea urchin.

It is my first video with my new video light system. I should say for a first trial I’m pretty happy. Nonetheless, next time, I will need to lower the intensity of the light for the close-up.

I am sure the grey seal I saw a couple of times at the surface was following us during the entire dive. I am really disappointed I couldn’t see it underwater. Hopefully, next time I can see it!

With such a beautiful day I included at the end of the video the beautiful sunset we saw on the Forth bridges after coming back from diving.
