Scotland has perhaps the most diverse and attractive coast in Europe although not always the easiest. The Corrievreckan is one of the largest whirlpools in the world, the Pentland Firth has some of the fastest currents in Europe, the Mull of Kintyre and Cape Wrath are a long way from civilization and some of the biggest surf in Britain is found along the north coast. Navigation aspects are covered fully.

Yet it is a coastline which is unbelievably beautiful, much of it wild with secluded places. From deserted sweeps of sand to rugged cliffs, from exposed headlands to sheltered sea lochs, from eagles to whales it is an endlessly fascinating coast.

Coastal Scotland visits all the coastline, including the larger inshore islands, the history, heritage and culture, architecture and engineering, flora and fauna, art and literature, the full spectrum of facets that make each stretch of coastline so special.

The ideal companion for VisitScotland's 2020 Coasts & Waters campaign.
