The United Kingdom is comprised of the island of Great Britain which includes England, Wales, and Scotland; surrounding islands including the Outer Hebrides, Orkney Islands, and Shetland Islands; and Northern Ireland. No part of the UK is more than 75 miles from the sea, but the geography is diverse. England consists of mostly lowland terrain with mountainous regions found in the north and in Wales. Scotland is divided into two distinct regions by the Highland Boundary Fault which separates the Highlands to the north and west and the lowlands in the south and east. The largest body of water in the UK is Northern Ireland's Lough Neagh. Though it is the largest body of water by surface area, Scotland's Loch Ness is larger by volume due to its great depth.
