We discovered this wreck in October 2006. Known locally as The Star of Hopes Wreck, she is the Iron dredger Scotia. While under tow from Eyemouth to Granton, she foundered in a NE 6 wind. 50 ton and had a crew of 9 men, she was owned by The Arbroath Harbour Commissioners. There are Lobsters found in the buckets and schools of Bib and Pout abundant on the wreck.
