Great Wrecks of

the Clyde

The cold dark waters of the Firth of Clyde are a graveyard of shipwrecks.

Best explored aboard the dive boat MV "Westering Home"

"KINTYRE"

Built Greenock 1868

The "Kintyre" was a small passenger/ cargo steamship that at the time was acknowledged as one of the most graceful to sail on the Clyde. Today she lies on a steeply sloping seabed in 38 - 49m bow to stern after, you guessed it, a collision with another steamer out on sea trials. The best part of this wreck is the shallower bow sections because as you go deeper the wreck disappears into the muddy seabed.
