Summary - Two vessels wrecked off the north coast of Sutherland.

A vessel came to Cape Wrath loaded with cotton. Local people heard about it and got some of the cotton that came ashore. Several weavers in the area made cotton sheets from it. Shortly afterwards, another boat went aground at a place called Tràigh Mhic an t-Saoir. Four farmers, each a Justice of Peace in the district, bought the boat and contents between them.

Uilleam Tòiseach composed this song about the latter wrecking.
