Dunbeath

Just off the cliffs under Dunbeath castle, lies the wreck of the Gretafield. Carrying 13000 tons of fuel oil, she was torpedoed north of Wick in 1940 and finally ran aground at Dunbeath.

 
It's only a short RIB ride to the wreck from the harbour and slipway.
 

 
The wreck lies in 12 - 14m. Being shallow, she is well broken up with little of the hull structure remaining. The boilers, engine, prop-shaft and machinery are easily located. The wreck can be completely studied in a single dive.
