A 6-metre cliff wall at the southern end has lots of established soft corals on it and shoals of fish can usually be observed, especially during the summer months. The seabed is at just over 16 metres on a low spring tide, while the top of this mound is in 10 metres, with short fronds of kelp. It is over half a mile NNW of North Wamses but it is worth a visit. This site is on the edge of steep slope dropping from 12 metres on the lowest spring tide down to 18 metres. Short seaweed covers the top but diminishes as you drop down the slope to a rocky seabed. There are a few crevices along the side of the hillock but tidal currents are quite brisk as the water surges up and over the top. This is an interesting area but there is no wreckage, just a variety of marine life to be seen. It is also best dived on a low slack tide. This is the top of a very large submerged mound or hill at around 12 metres on the lowest spring tide, where very strong currents sweep up and over. Large pollack shelter behind it catching morsels offood, swept up with the current.
