Richard said, “living on a boat the M/V Halton and diving some of the remote islands off the west coast of Scotland is an exhilarating experience. Sula Sgeir, meaning gannet rock, is 41 miles north of the Butt of Lewis. These wild and exposed islands provide habitat for an astounding variety and abundance of marine life. Places like these feel all the more special because, although remote and difficult to get to, they are a part of our heritage.”
