Was having a trawl of the net looking for info on the caves for Richy, came across this on a dive site...

Conger Alley:

Park in the big laybye. Kit up, cross the road and walk along to the
obvious beach access opposite the cottage. Enter the water to the right
of the big, obvious rock and descent to about 15m. Turn left and contour
round until you hit a rocky reef, extending from about 6m to 30m. Lots
of congers, esp. at night.

The Caves:

[DIFFICULT ENTRY]

Drive out of Arrochar past the pit stop and the village pub (which
serves excellent food and beer). About opposite Conger Alley there is a
tiny laybye (two cars max) just before a bridge. Kit up and struggle
down under the bridge (go through the tunnel) and pop out into the
water. Go down to about 6m, most of the good stuff is IMHO to the left.


I like the sound of Conger Alley, has anyone heard of this mark before ?

Yes i have heard of this mark, it is reported to hold monster conger, i remember a couple of years back there was an article in the daily record about a diver that got caught up with a very large conger which he estimated in ther region of 90 - 100ILbs, plus several other divers have been attacked by these large eels, many anglers have been in contact with large eels in this area also. There is also doggies, codling, coalies available here.

i've not fished the place myself, but i know a couple of lads that have and they're desperate to get back! think they used the same directions etc from the diving site and had a successful trip! need to get up there myself i think! type it into a search engine and it throws up some nice underwater pic's etc of the caves and reefs, and more importantly the congers!
