First dive at Blairgowrie for several months. The erosion protection measures (blanket-like bladders probably filled by pumping a slurry of sand through them) made it look quite desolate in some spots, although this will no doubt change over time. We did see a Large Bellied Seahorse, a couple of small rays, some hermit crabs, and several good-sized leatherjackets, and William and Kirsty saw a Bull Ray as well. Nowhere near as much fish life as we have seen here on previous dives! Still some work taking place on the new pier, but it looks like it is pretty much finished now, which will make it a bit quieter underwater...
