From recent groundings such as the Braer in 1993, back through time to the El Gran Grifon, wrecked on Fair Isle, in 1588, and beyond. Shetland's rugged coastline has claimed many vessels, and many lives. Shetlopedia now has details of in excess of 900 identified wrecks listed, and well in excess of 100 unidentified wrecks noted on the appropriate year pages, with more being added regularly.
N.B. The location of wrecks are recorded as accurately as information currently available will allow. Onshore wrecks, where specific placenames are available, are generally accurate to within a few hundred metres or less. Offshore wrecks however, due to generally less precise recording of their locations, should only be considered to be within approx +/- 10-20 miles accuracy.
