Many thanks for linking to Kilchoan Diary. This is a tragedy, not only for the ship and its crew but also for the tiny village of Lochaline which serves the quarry. They recently lost their only other major industry - a silica mine - and this threatens to lose them the quarry work.

I live right on the Sound of Mull so use Ships AIS all the time - a brilliant site. Many thanks to all of you who run it.
