This dataset comprises the boundaries of all Historic Marine Protected Areas in Scottish territorial waters.
Historic Marine Protected Areas are nationally important marine historic assets. The Scottish Government is committed to clean, healthy, safe, productive, biologically diverse marine and coastal environments, managed to meet the long-term needs of people and nature. This includes protecting and, where appropriate, enhancing our most important historic wrecks and other marine heritage sites in such a way that they can be valued and understood.
We also provide web services and an Atom Feed.
