SCAPE has overseen Coastal Zone Assessment Surveys
of the coasts of Coll; Tiree; Islay; Ayrshire; the Inner Clyde; parts of Kintyre and Arran; North and South Uist (both east and west coasts); and Scottish Borders. It has also undertaken the survey of Colonsay and Oronsay.
SCAPE has conducted research into fish
traps on the Moray Firth and the Firth of Forth
and has worked on developing airborne
as a means of finding sites buried in the dunes of Coll and Tiree. It is currently analysing all data collected in the Historic Scotland coastal surveys and will be working with others to help devise an action plan for future work at threatened sites.
In 2007, SCAPE teamed up with the Herald newspaper to organise a nationwide photographic competition. With a first prize of £1,000, Capturing the Coastline
helped to publicise Scotlandís coast and the problems it faces. Winners were selected by a panel of judges, including world-famous landscape photographer, Colin Prior. An exhibition of winning photographs toured Scotland between September 2007 and October 2008.
