Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order identifies the site in the Sound of Mull, near Mingary Castle of what is thought to be a wreck of a vessel and on account of the historical and archaeological importance of the vessel and its cargo the Order designates an area 250 metres around the site as a restricted area so as to protect the site from unauthorised interference.

The position given by the co-ordinates in article 2(1) of the Order is the position for use on Admiralty Charts 2392 and 2394 based on datum OSGB 36. The restricted area does not include any part of the designated area which is above the high water mark of ordinary spring tides.
