Killantringan Lighthouse

MV Craigantlet was a British container ship that ran aground on 26 February 1982 at Killantringan Lighthouse in Portamaggie Bay, Wigtownshire  in southwestern Scotland. The 800 ton cargo ship was bound to Liverpool  from Belfast  at the time. The lighthouse keeper raised the alarm, and Craigantlet's  crew was rescued via airlift by a Sea King from 829 Squadron based at the stone frigate HMS Gannet at Glasgow Prestwick International Airport.

Because the Craigantlet carried some containers marked with hazardous material codes — and reportedly some containers mislabeled as empty that were not[1] — there was concern that a dangerous chemical spill could occur. The immediate area was evacuated and an unmanned warning light was put in place. The containers were successfully removed over the next six weeks. The wreck of the Craigantlet was left in place, and partial remains were still visible in 2002 during low tide at Killantringan.
