In one of the Scottish Sea Lochs on a recent trip I saw a few of these blue balls on kelp:



They were a 1cm - 2cm across. Any ideas?

Yep, worm eggs -- could be paddleworm, but it's pretty hard to tell the species just from the egg case, at least for a non-expert like me. And in fact lugworm eggs can look similar too, I think... Google-image "paddleworm eggs" and you'll see some similar examples.
