The Golden Cross was adrift today off Ardentinny. The historic tug broke free from its mooring off Ardentinny Hotel at around 5.50am this morning. She is now lodged on a sandbank off Sandy Beach.
Video footage of the moored tug was captured by the LochLongCam.com webcam, as well as her drift across the bay (see below). This is the second time the tug has lost its mooring. In August last year, the Golden Cross broke free and drifted on to the same sandbank.
