Sheer cliff walls and reefs are covered in an abundance of marine flora and fauna of all descriptions with numerous species of fish, including cod, conger, ling, pollack, coley, ballan wrasse and wolf fish. The whole area is carpeted in heavy kelp while the reefs are separated by channels 7-10 metres wide and gullies containing masses of scattered wreckage from those ill-fated ships which have struck the reefs, including that of the little steamer Loch Leven. There are still some massive lumps of plate and framework from this ship, which is home to a number of large ballan wrasse, and it is not uncommon to see cod of up to ten kilos sheltering underneath. On the flood tide, most of the water from the north side of the Outer Farnes is channelled around this area, so currents can be exceptionally strong off this point, especially during springs. The current runs out to sea for about 200 metres before turning south through Seal Gut. There is plenty of shelter from the current in the many deep gullies but it is best dived at low slack water or during the ebb on neap tides. This site is a bit exposed, so surface marker buoys are recommended if diving when the tide is running on the flood or if there is a strong wind blowing, as divers will quickly disappear into the distance.
