Scapa Flow is a body of water in the Orkney Islands, Scotland, sheltered by the islands of Mainland, Graemsay, Burray, South Ronaldsay and Hoy. Its sheltered waters have been used by ships since prehistory and it has played an important role in travel, trade and conflict throughout the centuries - especially during both World Wars.
A consultation in ballast water management in 2013 measured the commonly used Harbour Authority definition of Scapa Flow at 324.5 square kilometres and just under 1 billion cubic metres of water.
