There was an air to ground RP range at Skelbo, south of Golspie and possibly a bombing range prior to that. Whils looking at the area I noticed a wreck at 57 56 01.26 N, 3 59 59.51 W. I checked RCAHMS for an aerial photo and an oblique from 1941 shows a beached ship intact. I wondered if this was later used as a target.
One way to confirm this is to find the ship and it's loss details but have been unable to find this via searches. Anyone know this area and what the ship was?

Note the map shows the location based on a wartime grid.
