RIBs leaving Kilchiaran Bay, Isle of Islay

Picture of two RIBs leaving a bay in the sunshineI’m not entirely sure if they went for a dive that afternoon (as they returned relatively quickly), but these two RIBs belonged to a group of divers who had set up camp in Kilchiaran Bay (I believe they are regular visitors to Islay)

  1. Today saw a Ceremony to remember sinking of HMS Otranto on Islay at Kilchoman, the disaster happened 100 years ago today. Earlier this year another salute to the victims of the HMS Otranto took place in the water of Machir Bay as the Badlads Diving group visited what remains of the wreck to pay their tribute. Peter was so kind to get in touch to share the link to the video of the event:

    A very nice tribute I think, very well done. The group has been visiting Islay for many years, I’ve shared a number of videos by them before.
    As it turns out they were on Islay at the same time as me in June, I actually took pictures of them leaving and returning to Kilchiaran Bay, where they had set up base. Unfortunately I hadn’t realised at the time that it was them, otherwise I would have gone over to have a chat. Maybe another time.
