To answer this question you need to do some research into the history of Udal Law in Shetland. The Shetland and Orkney Udal Law group (SOUL) can be found on the internet and highlights the main points of the argument. Basically, although Shetland and Orkney are acknowledged as being under Scottish rule since the annexation, the annexation was not entirely legal. Shetland and Orkney were pledged as part of a dowry payment in 1468/9 with the understanding that sovereignty would not be handed over and the islands would be redeemed at a later date when the money could be raised. The Scottish Crown was fly - even though the Danish/Norwegian Crown made several attempts to regain control of Shetland and Orkney, the Scottish Crown refused. Shetland was increasingly brought under Scottish rule and the issue of sovereignty was never fully addressed. Under Udal law, outright ownership of land included the seabed - so if Shetland is still legally Scandinavian and Udal law has never been completely replaced, then the seabed around Shetland belongs to Shetland and not to Scotland. North Sea oil around the Shetland basin therefore belongs to Shetland and the Scottish Crown is well aware of this. To openly address the issue of Shetland's sovereignty is thus to make this public knowledge...and the British parliament wouldn't want that...now would they?
Part of the United Kingdom is north of the Black Sea. Most of the United Kingdom is west of the North Sea. However, the Shetland Islands are part of Scotland. The Shetland Islands are north of the Black Sea.
The sea area between Orkney and Shetland is the meeting place of the Atlantic Ocean and North Sea.
No. Shetland is part of Scotland and so is Orkney. Shetland is located to the North of Orkney in the middle of the North Sea.
Shetland Ponies come from The Shetland Isles in the North Sea, just above and to the east of Scotland, in the UK.
a narrow neck on the Shetland mainland, is where the North Sea and the Atlantic meet
The only islands I find that meet that description are the Balearic Islands. They are in the Mediterranean Sea at least 100 miles from Africa.
They are owned by Denmark.
The Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea, and the Canary Islands of the coast of Africa are part of Spain. These are two sets of islands and they are not "owned" by Spain, they are part of Spain.
The North sea just off Shetland isles.
The Beaufort Sea.
The Orkney Islands are located just off the northern tip of Scotland where the North sea and the Atlantic sea meet. The Orkney Islands are comprised of about 70 islands.
Perhaps you are referring to the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea, and the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean.
These coordinates are pretty close to the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, halfway between Portugal and Newfoundland. This is about 450 miles northwest of the Azores, a chain of islands owned by Portugal.
The Caymans are north of the equator. The Cayman Islands are south of Cuba, and NW of Jamaica, in the Caribbean Sea.
Yes, North Germany has a coastline on the North Sea and the Baltic, and a number of islands.
Japan is between the North Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Japan.
Modern whaling in South Georgia began in 1904, the South Shetland Islands in 1906, in the South Orkneys in 1912, and in the Ross Sea in 1923.
islands between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, east of Puerto Rico
it looks like the closet sea to Denmark is the North Sea because in between the Baltic Sea and Denmark are a few islands and the North Sea is right on the coast linehope this helps!
The Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean.
