Dive Information: Blae Rock is one of the best Scenic dive sites in the Forth. Depths range from 7m on the plateau which has the largest Anenomes you will ever see, to 50m on the wall. This site also has a large selection of soft corals, It is best dived on neap tide - slack water .Visibility is normally 3m to 7m with 10m plus in summer months. If you miss slack water it makes an amazing drift dive.

Suggested experience: Sport diver/Ocean diver, Its best to dive with a buddy who has dived here so you know what to expect.
Other comments: It's a massive obstruction to the flow of the tide. It is therefore a slackwater dive. Care should be taken diving on a flooding springs there are stories of down currents at the wall. The best vis dive on neaps when there has been no easterlies.

Dive Report: Alex Macennan, May 07, 10 min rib ride from Burntisland. A bit further east than the Campania. Very silty when we dived it but a colourful top at 12/14m and colourful west wall which is deeper than 30m straight down. Got to 30m didn't see the undercut but might have been on the wrong place on the west wall.
