The schooner, Monreith, was built in Port William in 1880. She was on a voyage from Newcastle, County Down to Silloth carrying 110 tons of granite kerb stones when she put into Kirkcudbright Bay and struck the bar. Her crew all got safely ashore in the ship's boat. Today her ribs can still be seen when the tide is low.
