"Embo fishing fleet, after the war (1914-18) due to so many not returning and the migration of the herring that the boats constituting the fleet were taken round to loch Fleet and burned?". Memory of Richard Easson, Tain
As part of the Scotland’s Coastal Heritage at Risk Project (SCHARP) in 2014, a survey was carried out of a boat graveyard at Loch Fleet in partnership with the North of Scotland Archaeological Society (NoSAS) and the Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS).
Vessel G. A spread of wooden boat elements, scattered over an area of 13m by 9m. Possibly from more than one vessel, no obvious form. Many of the elements remain unidentified, apart from a piece of rudder c.1.2m in length, with attached pintle, possibly sawn off at one end. Long timber c.2.6, adjacent to this may be the remains of a stern post, angle of end of this timber would indicate a raked stern. <1>
