Rockall is a small, rocky islet in the North Atlantic but is probably better known as one of the British Sea Areas named in the Shipping Forecast broadcast on BBC Radio 4.
The status of the surrounding ocean floor is disputed between the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Denmark (for the Faroe Islands) and Iceland.
Ownership of Rockall itself, and the area surrounding it, did not form part of that agreement and was not affected by it.
