Lady's Rock

An uninhabited islet at the junction of Loch Linnhe and the Firth of Lorn, Lady's Rock lies between the islands of Lismore and Mull. It is said that one of the Macleans of Duart left his wife on this rock to be drowned by the rising tide. Despite being marked by a light-beacon, Lady's Rock was responsible for two notable ship-wrecks: the ferry PS Mountaineer hit the rock on 27th September 1889, while the steamship Clydesdale was lost on 6th January 1905. No lives were lost in either case.
