Ailsa Craig

Depth 35m, standing 5.5 m from a silty bottom

This wreck is fairly intact and sat upright, more or less. The bow is twisted though, over to the starboard side. The boiler and engine are clearly distinguishable on her stern.

She was a British steamer (built 1906 – 601 gross tons) carrying coal from Cardiff to Granville. On 15 April, 1918, the German submarine UB-80 was in the area and sent a torpedoe into her. This was the same day the Pomeranian was sunk, 4 miles to the west.

The wreck of the Moidart is also only 600 metres away to the north east.
