This boat is known as the « Corpach wreck« . It has become a photographer’s spot. It must be said that the sight of this fishing boat is moving. We try to imagine its story. How did it get there? Who could have abandoned it?
This wreck is actually the MV Dayspring. This boat was built in 1975 to catch herring and mackerel. In 2000, it stopped its activity. Moored in the Fort William area, the boat was caught in a storm in December 2011. The elements were so strongly unleashed that the mooring holding the boat let go.
Since then, the Dayspring MV has been quietly waiting where the storm brought it. Not so quietly. In 2017, a large rescue operation was launched because a boat had just triggered its distress beacon. It was actually the wreck’s buoy.
It was perhaps MV Dayspring’s trick not to be forgotten. The banks of the loch have now calmed down. But the old fishing boat is still waiting for someone to look at it and to reinvent a future for it.
