Cromarty Firth [name centred NH 69 67].

Possibly on map sheet NH86NW.

Cromarty, 13th Jan. The GARLAND (schr.), from Wemyss to Lossiemouth - in coming in here to wait the rise of the tides, took the ground near the North side of the Ferry, and still remains: it is reported she is making a great deal of water.

Source: The Marine List, LL, No. 12,732, London, Tuesday January 16 1855.

NMRS, MS/829/72 (no. 9098).

A location near Nigg Pier may be suggested for this stranding.

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

Information from RCAHMS (RJCM), 28 September 2006.
