Circumstances of Loss Details


The vessel caught fire and grounded during salvage operations on wreck of BERMUDA close by.

Surveying Details


20 November 1974. The wreck shows [just] at low water and stands about 1.8 - 2.4 metres high on a very soft silt bottom. The vessel has sunk into the silt leaving the stem post, part of aft deck, odd ribs along both gunwhales and the bow post showing. The wreck is buoyed by local fishermen as it constitutes quite a menace to local and small boats using the loch as a holiday anchorage. The trawler sank sometime in 1936 according to locals. The hull is intact under the silt and appears to be made of wood. The length is approximately 27.4 metres.

Report by C J Asten, 14 November 1974.

24 December 1975. The site is reported to the remains of a timber built barge. It's position is 58 14 17N, 005 10 05W. It dries to reveal 1.5 metres . The approx length is 15 metres.

Report by H L Johnson.

23 November 1987. The wreck that was formerly obstructing the anchorage has been demolished, but a few bits may remain on the bottom.
