The nickname Goldenbog kind of fits. The guano on the ramps may have gone but the portacabins were grim 20 years ago. Need to take a look at what is on offer at Andark Lake lakeside guys

Brilliant place to learn to dive. Wonderful people, great atmosphere, and highly professional dive tuition. If you are a new diver earning your C card or an experienced diver looking for further training, this is an excellent place to visit.

It was ok but the site could really be improved with a lick of paint and a dam good tidy up,don't expect to shower after as there's no hot water. It's a real shame as it could a great venue

It is like they want the place to shut down. I have not dived in Gildy in about 5years and it never was a pleasant experience but convenient and less busy than Stoney cove. I don't know why they think it is acceptable to sweep...More

The lake is great for diving, with generally pretty good visibility, clean water and some interesting wrecks to investigate. The restaurant is fairly good, and is good value. There's a dive shop at the site, which is very well-stocked. I have never bought anything from...More
