Provider Memorial – Langness

A lovely walk around Langness Peninsula today and I came across this inscribed rock with the words, ALL – 1853 – LOST – PROVIDER.

With a little bit of research I found that the Provider was a Schooner bound from Liverpool to Glasgow in 1853 with a cargo of salt – The Master and 3 crew were all lost and the Schooner wrecked just beyond these rocks at Langness.
