Hi guys! Do you call this "a huge circle of swirling water"?

Your answers will be greatly appreciated.

It’s called a “whirlpool” and Wikipedia has an article on it here.

Steve this photo is part of my heritage. It is the Corryvreckan Whirlpool off the coast of Scotland. My favourite Single Malt Scotch, made by Ardbeg is named after it. That is important heritage.
