Possibly on map sheet NG62SE.

NMRS, MS/829/72 (no. 11500).

(Classified as sloop: no cargo specified, but date of loss cited as September 1868). Cynnie Lloyd (Cynric Lloyd?): this vessel was wrecked [stranded] at Broadford.

Registration: Stornoway. Built 1843, 15 tons burthern. Length: 10m. Beam: 3m.

(location of loss cited as N57 15.0 W5 54.0).

I G Whittaker 1998.

The location of the Millburn cannot be established from the available map evidence. 'Broadford Harbour' is presumably to be equated with the Old Pier (NG62SW 96) at NG 64532 23550.

The correct form of the name of this vessel remains unverified. That cited in the primary account is preferred.
