Cromdale was a three masted fully rigged ship of 1900 tons built by Barclay Curle of Glasgow in 1891.

She was wrecked on 23 May 1913. Only the frames are visable now, at a depth of 9 meters, under Bass point.

She was on a voyage from Taltal, Chile to Fowey with nitrates, when she ran aground in thick fog.

There were no casualties. Within one week of the accident, the vessel, being badly holed, was broken up completely.
