Please note that the dive shops in Tobermory will not fill any tanks made from the 6351 Alloy (if you do not know if you have one of these tanks – the number will be stamped into the metal near the neck of the tank – otherwise have someone more experienced look at the tank to let you know). This is their prerogative as a business to not to fill these tanks, you can rent tanks if you have one of these tanks.
We will again have the use of a private “cottage”, 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom house is 10 minutes south of Tobermory. For the past few years, a friend of a SUCI member has loaned their cottage for this weekend, at a nominal cost. Details of the location will be given in a separate email. The cottage has 4 bedrooms with double beds, a single hallway bed and two couches. The property can also accommodate several tents.
The Coach House Inn is a popular place but must be booked ahead of time.
For those camping, it is recommended that you reserve early
