Archaeology Notes

NO12SW 8004 c. 12 21

N56 22 W3 26

NLO: Perth [name: NO 120 235].

(Classified as dredger, with cargo of sand; date of loss cited as 23 May 1923). Inchgarvie: this vessel sank in the [River]Tay, 0.5 mile from Perth Harbour. All gone?

(Location of loss cited as N56 22.00 W3 25.00).

I G Whittaker 1998.

The location assigned to this record is essentially tentative. Perth (or Friarton) Harbour (NO12SW 202) is centred around NO 1188 2195.

This vessel, or her remains, were presumably removed without delay from this constrained location.
