The Ministry of Defence uses Scotland's coasts and seas. The coasts are mainly used for training and locating bases. The seas, while also used for training, are important for test and evaluation activities as well as surveillance and monitoring of potential threats, and for combating these threats. This layer displays the areas of Scottish seas which are actively in use by the MOD. The dataset shows only those areas within Scottish waters and is derived from data licensed from OceanWise, corroborated by the UKHO PEXA web application.
