Hand dived scallops of Harris.

It was quite windy in Loch Reasort, a deep sea loch on the west coast of Harris in the Outer Hebrides. It was perhaps a little too breezy for sea kayaking.

So we went for a walk...

....while the divers went... diving in nearby Loch Tamnabhaigh.

They brought up a good haul of hand dived scallops. Recently StuartA commented "Maybe for hand-caught scallops? Yum!"

There is a worrying number of bits and pieces in there...

... but as Stuart said, Yum! (This photo Mike Marshall.)
