Italo-German Coastwatchers, Spies; Kriegsmarine / Red Navy

Still interested in :
(i) evidence of Kriegsmarine Coastwatching, Scottish East Coast - Firth of Forth, as suggested by the 1990's discovery of a cave with a swastika carved on a wall, but also all coasts
(ii) details of Kriegsmarine and Red Navy submarine / surface ships co-operating during Nazi-Soviet Pact era, especially Red Navy provision of U-Boat and U-Boat supply ships' facilities at, e.g. Terebirka or Terbika, near Murmansk and in the Soviet Far East
(iii) Nazi and Italian Fascist intelligence agents and sympthisers in the UK were busy 1928-1940 feeding Berlin and Rome with naval secrets and info about shipping movements, ports and harbours, naval defences.
In his book 'The Game of the Foxes', Ladislas Farago wrote about extensive Abwehr usage of German shipping lines and civilian aircraft as conduits for such information and for the movement and infiltration of Abwehr and other agents and couriers.
Can anyone expand upon these activities, especially with reference to German and Italian naval and merchant marine espionage in pre-war and wartime Scotland?
