This section contains photographs of the wrecked vessels around the Scottish coast. The photographs, mainly in black and white and taken at the time of the vessel‘s loss, have been gathered through forty years of research and are mainly therefore out of copyright. If we have reproduced a copyrighted photograph in error without the necessary permissions we apologise and will immediately remove any that might infringe any current copyright restrictions. While the photographs record the vessel’s plight at the time of their loss and, as such, are a valuable historical record the decisions made about their possible recovery or scrapping on site were made by the salvage experts of the time and always were dependent on the prevailing weather conditions after the wrecking. In many cases the details of the wreck and it’s salvage, or not if that was the case, will be described in the detailed narrative section of the website and can be followed up there by searching for the vessel name in the search box at the top of our home page.
