Flood Risk Areas of Scotland

Flooding is a very real risk in many areas of Scotland. With its variety of rivers running through, river flooding is a prominent issue for quite a few towns and cities. For those in coastal areas, floods from the sea can also occur. Finally, even places which don’t fit into either of these categories may still be susceptible to some form of surface flooding.
