The wreck of the Firth of Cromarty

The 'Firth of Cromarty' was wrecked off Corsewall Point in the Rhinns of Galloway in August 1898.  She was bound for Australia with a general cargo which included a large number of whisky crates.  As the ship broke up hundreds of bottles of whisky and beer were washed up on the beaches and, despite the best endeavours of customs officers, found their way into many local homes.
