Heading down the firth after discharging aggregates from Glensanda, the Norwegian coaster AASNES was on passage back to the Argyllshire superquarry for another cargo. AASNES, one of a number of similar vessels in the Aasen fleet, was built in 1981 as MEDALLION by Svendborg Skibs in Denmark. She was renamed AASNES in 2002 and rebuilt, giving her a deadweight of 4,750 tonnes. Her overall length is 94.2 metres.
