This was taken on the north shore of the small town of Ayr on the Scottish west coast. The wreck is the Clyde puffer “Kaffir” which was wrecked here in September 1974, when her engineer took her out of Ayr harbour under some very dubious circumstances. She went ashore, and despite efforts to refloat her the following day, her stern gear had been damaged by the grounding and she was eventually written off as a constructive total loss. Over the years, the continual action of the sea has pounded the wreck and she is now is two sections.
