The location of loss assigned to this record is essentially tentative. That cited by Whittaker remains unverified, but is accepted. The 'NE point of Dunnet Head' is presumably to be identified as Easter Head.

The form of the name of this vessel that is cited by Whittaker differs from that cited in the primary account; the former is preferred.

Information from RCAHMS (RJCM), 27 April 2007.
