Lochs Torridon and Shieldag, 1929 - Admiralty Chart: 2638
During the 19th century, the Hydrographic Office of the Admiralty surveyed all the coasts of Scotland in great detail, often updating charts regularly for busier ports and estuaries. The nautical charts they produced were for the benefit of mariners and focused on marine hazards, harbours, coastal settlements, and islands.
By the 1830s under Francis Beaufort, there was a growing trend towards standardisation of features, symbols and abbreviations. As well as depicting the coastline and high and low water marks with accuracy, many other features of interest to mariners were also included, including rocks, sandbanks and wrecks, depths in fathoms, navigational aids such as lights, buoys and beacons, and the nature of the sea bottom for locating good anchorages. Most charts also included a compass rose with a magnetic north indicator, so that compass bearings could be easily traced using parallel rules for any transit on the chart.
