The wreck of the Wyre Majestic in 1998, Isle of Islay

Picture of the wreck of a fishing trawler stranded on a rocky shoreOne of my oldest Islay pictures, taken during my very first visit to Islay in July 1998 (before digital cameras, scanned from a print). The Wyre Majestic ran aground at Rubha a’ Mhail near Bunnahabhain in October 1974, opposite the Paps of Jura on the other side of the Sound of Islay.

This is how the remains of the wreck looked almost 20 years later in April 2017.
