The key aim of this study was to outline the cultural heritage assets associated with merchant shipping in World War II and its protection, especially the convoy system. The different asset classes that might be associated with this have been researched and are understood to differing degrees. The offshore study area comprised Scotland’s territorial waters (0-12 nautical miles) and the exclusive economic zone (up to 200 nautical miles from the coast). The onshore cultural heritage assets that are included within the study tend to be on or near the coast. <1>
This assessment covered all of Scotland's coast. This source lacks a gazetteer of sites, and for practical purposes, the GIS data reflects the most frequently mentioned area in Highland - Loch Ewe. S Salem 09/10/2013
