Type: Steamship
Date of loss: 17/11/1958
Depth (seabed): 9m
The Nyon, a 5058 tonne Swiss Cargo ship, struck Meg WatsonÍs Rock, 4 miles northwest of St Abbs Head on her way from Leith to Dakar. The stern half of the ship was salved and towed to Holland where a new bow was added. The remaining wreckage is spread over a large area and requires a bit of a rummage to find it. The best diving to be had at this site is below the kelp forest which reaches its lower limit at ~9m.
