Archaeologists working with communities along Scotland's west coast have documented more than 100 shipwrecks and maritime artefacts.

The remains of lost World War Two flying boats and anchors from the 18th Century were also investigated and recorded.

The finds were made during the newly-completed three-year Project Samphire.

It involved archaeologists from Scotland and Australia and was funded by the Crown Estate.

Communities from Cape Wrath in the far north to the Solway Firth in the south of Scotland were involved.


A team of maritime archaeologists based in Edinburgh, at WA Coastal & Marine, and also Flinders University of South Australia, led the survey work.
