The map sheet and quasi-administrative area assigned to this record are entirely arbitrary, being derived from those of the port of report. The location of Oldney cannot be established from the available map evidence, but is assumed to lie within the area of the North Minch.
The loss of this vessel is not cited by I G Whittaker (1998), possibly suggesting her successful recovery.
Information from RCAHMS (RJCM), 18 November 2005.
