Surveying Details
20 November 1974. The wreck shows [just] at low water and stands about 1.8 - 2.4 metres high on a very soft silt bottom. The vessel has sunk into the silt leaving the stem post, part of aft deck, odd ribs along both gunwhales and the bow post showing. The wreck is buoyed by local fishermen as it constitutes quite a menace to local and small boats using the loch as a holiday anchorage. The trawler sank sometime in 1936 according to locals. The hull is intact under the silt and appears to be made of wood. The length is approximately 27.4 metres.
