Scotland’s coastal and marine environments define her borders and much of her culture, but the sea remains for many people an unknown quantity, an unfixed, uncontrolled environment, often to be wary of and not to be engaged with. The Deep Sea Light aims to reconnect audiences with this fundamental and help them appreciate our impact on this unique environment.
