Aberdeen Journal, 28/04/1824:
Brig Stranger, Soller master, of Aberdeen, went ashore at Garron Point about one mile north of Stonehaven. She had missed stays in tacking about and, drifting upon the rocks, received such an injury as to fill immediately + in now sunk by the rock in such a depth of water that mainmast is scarcely visible at high tide. Topmast + some of the sails, yards and rigging have been saved.
[Suggests LLoyd's register incorrect in showing her extant until 1830?]
