Default Spot lobsters, crabs and jellyfish in SCOTLAND as its first ever snorkelling trail is launched

Give the kilts and castles a miss and explore the Highlands with a snorkel
The Scottish Wildlife Trust unveils new self-led underwater marine-life trail
Brave ice cold water to see dogfish, barrel jellyfish, crabs and sea urchins


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/tr...-launched.html


There are nine locations named by the Scottish Wildlife Trust as
the best spots in the Highlands to go snorkelling



Snorkellers can spot pot lobsters, crabs, rare maerl, kelp beds,
sea-grass and a sunken naval base in the nine hotspots named



The self-led underwater route highlights the richly-populated,
living seas around the north west Scottish coast



Beginner and experienced snorkellers can follow the trail that
takes them around the underwater world of Wester Ross (above)

THAT is a really excellent idea... a tad cold, though.
