A 108m/354ft long cargo ship was built and launched in Glasgow in 1910, and in 1941 has been bombed by a German air raid while transporting coal. The wreck lies in an upright position at 50m/164ft depth. The main deck is 35m/114ft deep and the mast starts at a manageable 17m/55ft. Most parts of the wreck are still intact (except for the damage in the starboard quarter) and it is possible to penetrate the holds, but is not really necessary, as the most interesting parts of the wreck are visible from the outside. There is a lot for divers to explore including forepeak, complete with winch gear, deckhouses, the front, and rear masts, which are still in place, and ladders leading to the bridge and passageways across the deck. It is also easy to move from room to room or down the inboard companionways. It is also worth checking out the propeller and huge rudder which are located in the deepest part of the wreck.
