Skye’s the limit

After our great success working with the SAMS dive team in the Firth of Lorn the SAMPHIRE team set off on their own on the MV Kylebhan, a converted trawler skippered by Oban resident Jim Kilcullen. Our goal on this trip is to chase up leads shared with us by local people on unrecorded shipwrecks and maritime heritage all around Skye and the Firth of Lorn. Our first day was spent steaming from Oban to the Isle of Eigg, with an overnight in Tobermory where we had a chance to set foot on Mull, an island with an incredibly rich maritime history.
