Yes I think this is the Ross Khartoum but she had been converted into a oil rig standby boat by this time.

Se Jim Pottingers photo of her on the beach HERE

The Ross Khartoum had an aft mast but this one has no aft mast!!!

Looks more like one built by Lewis of Aberdeen seem that she has those special
buckled bow that some Lewis built ships had!!!!

No nicolina she has an aft mast its just the photo isn't very clear. I see what you mean about the bow now but i'm not sure of any other trawlers ashore on that bit of the beach in the 1970's that would fit.

Ok I think i've solved the identity of this one , I think its the Mount Eden A152. Billy uploaded a photo of her ashore on the other site i'm on HERE and the bow shape and funnel markings are consistent with this one.

Definitely not Ross Khartoum, as she was longer having been lengthened. I managed some photos of her the morning she came ashore and later being dismantled.
Where was this taken?

Not the Khartoum. She didn't have a knuckled bow section and had a blue hull when she went ashore

If its the Mount Eden, I got £120 as my share of an abortive contract salvage, Given that Mates wages were £60 a week I didn't complain!

Initial salvage was attempted day after initial grounding, but tides were going back and the Big L, nearly pulled the deck out of Mount Eden before parting the gear. Decision was made to defer salvage until next spring tide when I believe she floated off with little effort.

Hallo Davie Tait:
Was not far away in my observation!!! It was one built by John Lewis of Aberdeen
