(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.

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.
