Clyde Shipwrecks and Argyll Shipwrecks by Peter Moir and Ian Crawford
Clyde Shipwrecks and Argyll Shipwrecks by Peter Moir and Ian Crawford

When Clyde Shipwrecks and its companion Argyll Shipwrecks were first published, it followed many years of painstaking research on the part of Peter Moir and Ian Crawford. They have not stopped there, because Clyde Shipwrecks has been updated with an extra 16 pages, including new wrecks, more photographs, superb positional maps and GPS co-ordinates for the most popular dives off the west coast of Scotland.
Available now only in hardback, each book is split into five chapters. The former covers Bowling to the Mull of Galloway, the latter the Mull of Kintyre to Skerryvore. Each wreck is examined from a historical, diving, marine life and photographic point of view.
Original photographs of the ships, numerous plans and underwater drawings are included, and virtually every wreck gets its own location map and transit sightings. There are detailed descriptions of 283 wrecks and additional information on another 469 that have been lost.
I regard these two books as the definitive wreck guides to the south and west of Scotland.
