Alexander Campbell, shipwreck, Isle of Islay, Gartbreck, Loch Indaal
The Campbell family were shipwrecked the night of October 7, 1808, on the rocky coast of Loch Indaal near Gartbreck Point. On the morning of October 8, Jane Corneigle Campbell and her six younger children were rescued and took refuge on a large rock in this area in a fierce gale. They waited there until Alexander left the doomed ship with the last boatload of passengers. The family was reunited about 2pm. This photograph looks southwest across Loch Indaal at low tide toward the Rhinns on the west side of the Loch.
