Abstract/Summary

Say ‘fjord’ and, not surprisingly, most people picture the stunning west coast of Norway. Fjord is a general Nordic name for a marine inlet, mostly used for inlets made by glaciers. Anyone familiar with the intricate geography and spectacular scenery of the west coast of Scotland will easily recognise that the very same glacial processes have been at work here too. Less obvious, though, is the dramatic underwater landscape that forms an integral part of western Scottish fjords.
