This United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) Admiralty chart covers the West Coast of Scotand, from Kintyre in the South to Cape Wrath in the North. This coastal part of the country in particular is heavily indented, with long promontories separated by fjord like (long, narrowly formed inlets with steep sides or cliffs) sea lochs.
The firths (a term for large sea bays, straits or smaller inlets) of the Western Coast of Scotland are Firth of Clyde, Firth of Lorne and Solway Firth, the latter of which a form part of the border with England, and comprises part of the Irish Sea. The coastal regions in particular are a comparatively warmer part of the country, due to the influence of the Atlantic currents, and the colder surface temperatures of the North Sea.
In this nautical chart, information is provided for reading Depths, Heights, Positions, Navigational Marks and Sources, and there are also relevant notes regarding:
- Local Magnetic Anomalies
- Identifying Wrecks
- Navigating Submarine Cables
- Traffic Seperation Schemes
- High Speed Craft
- Laden Tankers in the East of the Outer Hebrides, Deep Water Route and North Channel
- Firing Practice Areas
