This wreck lies just off the north shore of Russel Island, outside of the harbour at Tobermory. The Scoville was originally built in Cleveland in 1863, and was another wreck that fell victim to rough October weather in 1889. It drifted off course and stuck Russel Island. It was enroute from Collingwood, Ontario to Escanaba, Michigan. The wreck lies on a slope, with it's bow at about 95 feet and it's stern in about 35 feet of water.
