This work is a reference guide to shipping losses off the coast of Scotland from Stonehaven northwards to Duncansby Head, then westwards to Cape Wrath and the Minch. Each of the wrecks is listed, under the area in which it went down, with details of its position, history and fate.

The author has drawn upon a great variety of official records, as well as using the knowledge of local inhabitants, fishermen and sailors. While acknowledging that, because of censorship, our knowledge of shipping losses in the First and Second World Wars may still be incomplete, Bob Baird has compiled the most comprehensive guide now available.

This book will of course be indispensable to divers wishing to explore these wrecks and with technological advances in diving equipment more and more of the deeper wrecks are becoming accessible but it will also appeal to anyone who loves the sea and ships, who has an interest in this part of Scotland or in maritime history.

Each of the wrecks is listed, under the area in which it went down, with full details of its position and information about the ship's history and fate. In addition there are indexes listing the wrecks by latitude and alphabetically by name. The text is also accompanied by detailed maps and charts to aid in wreck location, and there are numerous illustrations and photographs, many of them dramatic action-shots of the ships' last moments afloat. This book will of course be indispensable to divers wishing to explore these wrecks and with technological advances in diving equipment more and more of the deeper wrecks are becoming accessible but it will also appeal to anyone who loves the sea and ships, who has an interest in this part of Scotland or in maritime history.

Bob Baird was born in Perth. He spent thirty years in the motor industry, first with the Ford Motor Company, for whom he became Fleet Sales Manager for Scotland and Northern Ireland, and then as director of a Ford dealership in Central Scotland. He has been a keen diver for twenty-five years and has had a long-standing interest in shipwrecks. He lives in Dunfermline.
