Description. Lang: en

Rockall () is an uninhabitable granite islet in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the United Kingdom, situated in the North Atlantic Ocean. It is claimed by the United Kingdom as its territory. This claim is not recognised by its neighbours.Its approximate distances from the closest islands in each direction are: 301.3 kilometres (187.2 miles; 162.7 nautical miles) west of Soay, Scotland; 423.2 kilometres (263.0 miles; 228.5 nautical miles) northwest of Tory Island, Ireland; and 700 kilometres (430 mi; 380 nmi) south of Iceland.
The nearest permanently inhabited place is North Uist, an island in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, 370 kilometres (230 mi; 200 nmi) to the east.The United Kingdom claimed Rockall in 1955 and incorporated it as a part of Scotland in 1972.  The UK does not make a claim to extended EEZ based on Rockall, as it has ratified the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) which says that "rocks which cannot sustain human habitation or economic life of their own shall have no exclusive economic zone or continental shelf". However, such features are entitled to a territorial sea extending 12 nautical miles (22 kilometres). Ireland’s position is that Rockall does not even generate a 12 nautical mile territorial sea for the United Kingdom owing to the United Kingdom’s uncertain title to Rockall. Ireland does not recognise the UK’s claim, although it has never sought to claim sovereignty for itself. The consistent position of successive Irish Governments has been that Rockall and similar rocks and skerries have no significance for establishing legal claims to mineral rights in the adjacent seabed or to fishing rights in the surrounding seas."
