European countries - Extreme parallels and meridians running through them

For each country, type the 'extreme' (northernmost etc) meridians and parallels running through them. Note that you have an error margin of 3 so for example if the answer is '12 N' you maybe type any of '9N' '10N' '11N' '12N' '13N' '14N' '15N'
If no parallel/meridian crosses the country, the one passing closer to the extreme points of the country is considered (these answers are highlighted in green)
Data from wikipedia eg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_easternmost_point excluding Russia and Turkey; also excluding points outside Europe (eg Greenland), Faroe and Azores included
If no parallel/meridian crosses the country, the one passing closer to the extreme points of the country is considered (these countries are highlighted in green)
Distance between consecutive parallels is about 111km, distance between consecutive meridians varies (about 111km at the equator, 0 at the poles)
