Defence (Military) - Military exercise areas and danger areas (PEXAs)

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

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.

Navigation channels (Recommended Routes and Fairways)

Marine Scotland Information NMPi icon

This layer shows the navigational channels, fairways and buoyed areas around / within ports that are used for the purposes of guiding shipping movements. Ships may also be seen outwith these areas if there is sufficient water depth. Fairways are that part of a river, harbour and so on, where the main navigable channel for vessels of larger size lies. It is also the usual course followed by vessels entering or leaving harbours, called ‘ship channel’ (as defined in the International Hydrographic Organisation).

For the main ports, Marine Scotland has confirmed the data with the relevant harbour / port authority. This dataset contains data licenced from OceanWise.
