The Kilbulk was a 177nt 57 metre long Norwegian coaster, built in Trondheim in 1968. She ran aground in bad weather in July 1987 and sank a few hours later, after the crew had been rescued. 

The wreck lies in a narrow gully with a flat bottom at 38m. The stern was upright and intact in summer 2003, but the wheelhouse was moved through 90 degrees and damaged during a storm that winter. The bow is inverted and shows massive damage where the Kilbulk struck the rocks. This wreck is in an exposed position, and is close to the controlled fairway used by very large vessels.
