The wreck was first discovered in 1979 by a naval diving instructor and was brought to the attention of the Archaeological Diving Unit in 1991. The wreck probably dates to 1653 and may be that of the Speedwell, a small Cromwellian vessel lost following operations against the MacLeans of Duart. A number of items exposed by erosion were raised by the Archaeological Diving Unit in 1992 on b ehalf of Historic Scotland and are being conserved by the National Museums of Scotland. A detailed survey was undertaken by the Scottish Institute of Maritime Studies in 1993.
