Mull, Sound of Mull, Rubha an Ridre, 56.30.10N, 05.42W
A fishing trawler that drove ashore in a gale after her engine broke down. She is reported as having thrown all her bunker coal overboard and refloated herself, but Lloyd's Casualty Returns suggests she remained on the rocks very close to where the Man-o'-War DARTMOUTH and the coaster BALLISTA were lost. She was on a fishing trip from Granton.
