Norway has the third largest coastline (relative to its area) in the world. So how do the Scottish Islands and their rugged coastlines compare?

Using a mixture of census data and mapping tools, this print explores the coastline ratios of the largest 99 inhabited Scottish islands. 

These islands are grouped into their island groups from the small isles to the Shetland islands. These groups create the rocky coastline effect on the left of the print. The further the rock extends to the right, into the sea, the larger the coastline length relative to its area. Essentially the more jagged the coastline.

The names of each island represent the coastline and also illustrate the area of the island. The names of the larger islands are positioned further to the right and the smaller are labelled further to the left.
