Great for diving (or watching!). Get there early for parking. Tanks refilled very quickly, well stocked shop. Great cafe/bar - try the cheesy chips !

I have to laugh at the title of some of the reviews of Stoney Cove. 'Dive Heaven' ? Really? ! I first came to Stoney in 1997. It has changed a lot since then, with more stuff on the water (stangarth etc). However what has not changed is the overcrowded car park at weekends. This can entail a long walk... More

Qualified here back in 2000 so been coming here for a few years now. This dive site is a very well oiled machine, if your coming here at the weekend then your in for a bumpy ride, to get a prime car park space by the lake means a 5am queue unless you book a space in advance. It is... More

Came here to complete by PADI and begin pleasure diving. Beautiful surroundings and an awesome place to dive. The children loved it too and we'll be back for years to come I'd imagine.

Stoney is a good place to go if you are newly qualified diver or and experienced diver. There is different levels to dive at with something to see at each level. If you are really luck you may also spot Nessie on your dive.

Came here for a quiet lunch, something a bit different over looking the water, great food but awful staff making the experience very unwelcoming, the manager got our order wrong and when we went back to swap our drinks he made it out to be our fault and was very rude about the matter. As a result I wouldn't recommend... More
