The normal low-water baseline may be departed from in localities where the coastline is deeply indented or cut into, or where there is a fringe of islands along the coast in its immediate vicinity. In such a case, a straight baseline may be drawn by joining appropriate points on the coast1. This has been done in respect of parts of the coast of Scotland2. The drawing of such baselines must not depart to any appreciable extent from the general direction of the coast3, and the sea areas lying behind the baselines must be sufficiently closely linked to the land
