Kyleakin, 20th Jan. On the 16th Jan. [1866], a vessel was observed off the mouth of Loch Eynort (Isle of Skye), bottom up: no boat could get near the vessel from the state of the weather, and at nightfall she was seen to be drifting in a southerly direction, and would probably go to pieces on either the Isles of Canna or Rum. [Record received incomplete].

The map sheet and quasi-administrative area assigned to this record are arbitrary. It remains unclear where the derelict eventually stranded or foundered; this may have been beyond Scottish waters.
