There are numerous sea lochs around the Scottish coast, notably down the length of Scotland's western coast. A sea loch is a tidal inlet of the sea which may range in size from a few hundred metres across to a major body of seawater several tens of kilometres in length and more than 2 or 3 kilometres wide. Other tidal inlets include firths, voes and bays. The term "firth" is used in Orkney and Shetland to denote inlets of the sea of the type which might be labelled as lochs elsewhere in Scotland. They are not listed here. There is also a tidal embayment on the coast of the Solway Firth known as Manxman's Lake.
