Region 14. South-west Scotland: Ballantrae to Mull
Barne, J.H. et al
Effective management of the coastal zone depends on good knowledge of its resources and what affects them. The JNCC's Coastal Directories project, co-ordinated by JNCC on behalf of a wide-ranging funding consortium, collated extensive baseline environmental and human use information, including fisheries, for the coastal and nearshore marine zone of the whole of the UK, including Northern Ireland, the Isles of Scilly, Shetland, Orkney and the Isle of Man. The information is designed to meet the needs of planners and coastal zone managers and users. A disk set, in Adobe Acrobat format, is available to complement the book edition of most regional volumes and is supplied with free Windows-compatible reader software.



Region 14 covers the major part of the coastline of southwest Scotland. The coastline is long - 2,761 km - because of the numerous islands off the mainland shore. These include the large islands of Arran, Islay, Jura and Mull as well other smaller islands, notably Bute, Colonsay, Coll and Tiree. Together they represent 23.5% of the total coastline of Scotland and 14.7% of that of Great Britain.
