The Firth of Clyde encompasses many islands and peninsulas. It encloses the largest and deepest coastal waters in the British Isles, sheltered from the Atlantic Ocean by the Kintyre peninsula which encloses the outer firth in Argyll and Ayrshire, Scotland.
This part of Scotland is an area of outstanding natural beauty. An archive black and white chart dating from the 1950’s was chosen to highlight this complex coastline to wonderful effect. Cowal is the peninsula that is bordered on the west side by Loch Fyne and on the east by the Firth of Clyde. The chart features the Isle of Arran and the smaller Isle of Bute.
2 inserts are included, one of Ayr Harbour and the other of the interestingly-named Burnt Isles. The chart’s features are highlighted by surround lighting. It has a charcoal mount and background, and a black frame completes this lovely chart.
