It lies on a firm seabed of sand and gravel in a general depth of 64 m (LAT). The wreck is upright but totally collapsed and well broken up, standing just 2 m high and covering an area 61 m long and 17 m across. Quite a number of crustaceans but not many fish have been observed around the wrecksite. On the morning of Friday, 25 September 1903, the Sophie Annet, with Captain Khart in charge, was proceeding in ballast and on passage from Zaandam in the Netherlands for Grangemouth, when, during dense fog, she struck some rocks at the south end of Longstone in the Outer Farne Islands. The ship was badly holed but managed to pull herself clear. Six of the crew put off in a boat, with instructions from the master to stand by, but the Sophie Annet, with ten feet of water in the holds, slipped off and set away in a southerly direction towards Alnmouth. Meanwhile, the Scottish steam trawler Isabella of Montrose found the six crewmen in the boat and took it in tow; the men were later landed at Berwick. As the Sophie Annet proceeded south she met the Leith steamer Warsaw sailing from Sunderland to Leith and after a discussion between the two masters, it took her in tow. After travelling for some time, the Sophie Annet signalled to the Leith ship that she sinking rapidly, so the remaining 14 crewmen were immediately taken onboard the Warsaw. The wire hawser was let go and the Sophie Annet sank almost at once, going down bows first.
