Unknown Cannon Site at Innisidgen


Here is another current project of ours (IMAG) called the Innisidgen gun site. IMAG members discovered this site as recently as 2001 but do not as yet have a positive identity for the wreck. We believe the guns could have come from a ship called the John which ran aground in 1645. Although this site is in only 30ft of water, it tends to be quite a murky area to dive so good pictures are hard to obtain.
