Salen Pier House is an ideal location for divers
with access to the sea via its own private shingle slipway for boat or shore
Many of our divers now
at Lochaline. On arrival cars are parked at Lochaline, all kit is
loaded on to the boat and after a dive or two, guests are taken to Salen
Pier. A few more days diving and then return to Lochaline.
