I guess this wreck is rarely viewed. Islay Sea-Adventures took us on a boat trip circumnavigating Islay, an amazing opportunity to photograph otherwise inaccessible gridsquares and view seldom seen sights such as this.

This is part of the wreckage of the Inniskea, a steel steamship which broke down off Tory Island on her maiden voyage in 1912. She was being taken by tug to her native Glasgow for repairs, but broke free of her cable in the hours of darkness and crashed into the cliffs below Stremnish on the Mull of Oa. All the crew managed to escape but it was too late for any of the vessel to be salvaged.
