Inner Sound, Scotland
The Inner Sound includes the deepest section of the UK's territorial waters, with a maximum depth of 1,062 feet (324 metres). An area, over 1 1⁄2 mi (2.4 km) long and up to 1⁄4 mi (400 m) wide, exists below a depth of 960 ft (290 m), with a relatively flat bottom. There is another cleft 828 ft (252 m) deep, separated from the deeper bowl by an area of shallower water. A dive to examine the deeper trench found the bottom to be made up of bioturbated mud, with a steep slope towards the west of up to 60°.
