The Scotsman is reporting that a treasure trove of unregistered shipwrecks has been discovered during a navigational mapping survey of the Scottish seabed.

Marine science students, led by lecturer Dr John Howe, made the find while scanning the seabed between Oban and the ­island of Jura.

Dr Howe, from the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) in Oban, said 13 previously unregistered wrecks have been uncovered.

He said: “We found two flying boats, between Oban and Mull. We think it’s a Sunderland and a Catalina.

“The others are smallish, presumably Second World War or turn of the century coasters and fishing vessels.”
