Land's End was a barren storm shattered headland at this time (now has plush hotel superimposed) but can't work out where above scene might be.

Yes, I see there has been a misunderstanding somewhere, Land's End is where she was wrecked.The original has a line that goes: Specific subject terms: Land's End, harbour, lighter, buildings, sailing vessel. It might have been me who misunderstood that line. (To me it reads as a list of the picture content.) There are lots of pictures of her wreck on the net, even a Youtube video from an old newsreel. Ca, 3:25 into the video:
