Chart locations

Charts cover widely differing areas; some whole bays or lochs and others just small areas that we think are interesting. We do not survey areas we think are adequately covered by published UKHO charts. For examples see Home or tap here.  Each chart has a general description, directions and tides.


We expect more will follow: please email us with your suggestions.

If you would like to suggest a location for a survey we have not yet done please contact us to let us know. We much prefer to produce charts that we know at least someone wants!


Chart names

We have chosen these to try to give an indication of the general area as well as the specific location. Edition numbers change every time there is there is any modification to the surveyed area or a significant change to the background part of the chart. Changes to the surveyed area include corrections, expansion of coverage and more detailed coverage.



Chart numbers refer to latitude  - e.g. number 5537A is to be found at 55 degrees 37 minutes north and the ‘A’ implies that it is the first chart we made at that latitude whilst ‘B’ would be the second, etc. The charts are therefore listed from south to north. Charts with a ‘W’ suffix are in the Outer Isles; those with a ’Y’ are in the Clyde area and those with an ‘XL’ are at an extra-large scale with additional colouring for drying areas.



Status is as follows:

N = New for 2020

M = Modified with relatively minor changes since 2018

C = Commentary added

R = Renamed

U = unchanged since 2018 except for the addition of a logo
