The St.Abbs and Eyemouth Voluntary Marine Nature Reserve off the south east coast of the Scottish Mainland was founded by the author Lawson Wood.
Since 1978, this remarkable area has one of the highest concentrations of marine life to be found in British waters.
This is due to its geophysical location being fed by both a cold arctic current and the warm waters of the North Atlantic Drift bringing both warm water and cold water species to live in the same area.
This is the essential guide to the marine reserve and it is packed with detail, superb photography, descriptive maps as well as boat charter companies and emergency information.
Read about the best dive sites from Berwick-upon-Tweed to Eyemouth; in the Barefoots Marine Reserve; from St Abbs village to Skelly Hole; and from Pettico Wick to Fast Castle. Sections on marine life, conservation measures and dive planning complete a thorough picture drawn by an author who was brought up in the area and has dived it with a passion for more than 30 years. Illustrated in colour and black-and-white.
