Glasgow, 26th Oct., the AGNES of this port, with 40 barrels of herrings on board, went ashore at Loch Hourn during the recent gale and had one side crushed in.

Source: Shipping Intelligence, LL, No. 18,882, London, Wednesday October [26 1874].

NMRS, MS/829/70 (no. 4175).

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 successful recovery.
