Burials at Sea - Designated Areas

Owners/masters/charterers/nominees of fishing vessels are reminded that there are two Scottish sites designated for burials at sea. It is therefore recommended that fishing activity at these sites be avoided.

Designated Area
(A) 210 miles due west of Oban
56º 45’N 009º 15’W
(B) 15 miles west of John O’Groats
58º 42.70’N 003º 23.30’W

An illustrative map indicating the two sites is available here.
