The Glasgow registered steamer The Prince, owned by Messrs. J & J Hay, was another casualty of the great storm of December 1894. The small steamship stranded at South Cairn, about a mile and a half south of Corsewall Lighthouse on 22nd December with the loss of 2 of her 11 crew.
The Prince had been en route to North Wales from Sligo in ballast but became unmanageable in the atrocious weather conditions. Fortunately the vessel was pushed high on the rocks when she stranded, and as the tide ebbed, the crew were able to reach the safety of dry land.
The wreck was later sold at auction in 1895, and as can be seen from the photographs, dismantled in-situ.
