Annex 1 - Indicative areas
This annex contains further information on each of the possible areas that emerged at Stage 2 of the assessment process, namely:
- Argyll Islands and Coast;
- Lochaber and South Skye;
- Wester Ross and North Skye;
- North Uist, Sound of Harris, Harris and South Lewis;
- South Uist, Sound of Barra and Barra;
- Shetland (including Fair Isle); and
- Moray Firth.
The following table provides a pen portrait of each of these possible areas, describing its main settlements and transport links and providing data on its size, population and administration. Further information on each of these possible areas is contained in background paper D.
The rest of the Annex contain maps of each of the possible areas. For each of the possible areas, the seaward and terrestrial extent illustrated in these map is indicative only.
No proposal for a coastal and marine National Park in these areas
has been made. Local consultation will be an essential part of the next
stage in the development of any such proposal, and these maps have only
been prepared to facilitate this.
