After being wrecked when she ran aground, on 26th December 1879, the CRAIGIE LEA broke her back some years later and the stern section was carried ashore in the bay to the north of what, on some maps, is named Craigielea [sic] Point. Her Captain, A. J. Winther, sold the CRAIGIE LEA’s hull at public auction for £3 5 0d. Some spars, boats, rigging, and other articles salvaged from the wreck were disposed of at the same auction for about £143.
