SUNK

At 9 pm on 8 May 1913, daylight turned to dusk and, almost exactly an hour later, the 240ft Shuna ran blind on to the Grey Rocks and started taking in water. Captain Elsper went astern, and as his ship came free tried to head for Tobermory. It was a forlorn hope. The pumps were beaten, and as the water gained, he beached north of Rubha Aird Seisg. .

DIVING

The most intact wreck in the Sound of Mull. Situated out of the main current, the Shuna can be a little silty, especially when there are lots of divers on it. Launch: Lochaline, Tobermory.
