Kirkaig Point [name: NC 059 212]

Inverkirkaig [name: NC 077 199]

Enard Bay [name centred NC 03 16]

Possibly on map sheet NC02SE.

Not to be confused with NT27NE 8152.

(Classified as smack: no cargo specified, but date of loss cited as 29 April 1868). Garibaldi: this vessel was wrecked in Loch Kirkaig (?), Lewis. Capt. McRae. (Not in reg: fishing boat?). Registration: Stornoway.

(Location of loss cited as N58 0.0 W6 0.0).

I G Whittaker 1998.

The location, map sheet and quasi-administrative area assigned to this record are essentially tentative. The OS gazetteer cites no Loch Kirkaig on Lewis, but Assynt is sufficiently close for mis-entry in the original entry to be presumed.
