As the name suggests, this gallery is a collection of old black and white photographs of vessels wrecked around the coast of Scotland. Most pictures are of ships that have gone aground in bad weather and are probably the last record of that vessel in as near intact condition. The decision to try and recover a ship was generally governed by location and accessibility, logistics, weather and financial e.g. cost of salvage and repair versus value, either for re-use or scrap. In most cases they were either raised and removed, salvaged and dismantled in-situ or destroyed by the sea and wind.
