Cromarty Firth [name centred NH 69 67].

Cromarty, 29th Sept. The BELLA (sloop), of Wick, Cormack, for Newcastle, put in here 27th Sept., parted from her anchor, and drove ashore, but is expected off.

NMRS, MS/829/72 (no. 9282).

The location 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.
