MV Dayspring, Corpach

Display image: MV Dayspring, Corpach
An appropriate place for a shipwreck, well, grounded and mostly abandoned former fishing trawler boat: Corpach takes its name from the Gaelic ("bodily", concerning corpses), possibly as it was used as a resting place for carrying chieftains' coffins on their way to burial on Iona. The MV Dayspring was originally built in 1975 and moored at Kinlochleven Pier from 2001. A chain fell off during a heavy storm in 2011 and the boat ran aground at Caol where it's been ever since. This was taken on the initial exploration of the day - the low cloud and mist covering the tops of Ben Nevis in the distance behind.
