NC46SE 8024 unlocated

NLO: Loch Eriboll [name centred NC 44 60]

Pentland Firth [name centred ND 35 81].

Possibly on map sheets NC45NW, NC45NE, NC45SW, NC45SE, or NC46SW.

Loch Eriboll, 12th Nov. The TOWN (smack), of Wick, Morrison, from this place to Thurso, in ballast, drove ashore 8th Nov.: crew saved.

Source: Additional Intelligence, LL, No. 16,411, London, Friday, November 16 1866.

NMRS, MS/829/72 (no. 11100).

The map sheet assigned to this record is essentially arbitrary.

The loss of this vessel is not cited by I G Whittaker (1998), presumably suggesting her subsequent recovery.

Information from RCAHMS (RJCM), 8 January 2007.
