The “Remaining” Wrecks


The Doyle (ex Widdrington) is a 1,761 ton, 79.3 metre single-screw coastal steamer built in Troon, Ayrshire and sunk as a blockship by the Admiralty in October 1914.

This vessel is substantially intact and easily accessible. Home to abundant fish and other marine life, the Doyle is easily and safely accessible and another great dive for beginner and intermediate level divers, or a second dive for those having dived the deeper wrecks at 12-17 metres deep. However, the Doyle, like the other Burra Sound wrecks, is limited to periods of slack water.
