Burns Supper 2017: Ratagan 27-29 January
Our 5th year at Ratagan which we have found to be a perfect mid-winter shore diving venue; although this year it felt more like April than January. 25 divers including guests from Caithness and Bo'ness. Most did 4 dives, and plenty of training took place. As well as the sea pen "forest" at 30m on the "house reef", several sightings of skates/thornbacks. Burns supper speeches given by Les (toasting the haggis), Andy (Immortal Memory), Robin (To the lasses), and Berit (Reply for the lasses). Musical accompaniment by the Grampian Kazoo and Swanney whistle orchestra.
