Scottish Insight is a comprehensive report that provides the three key aspects a consultant needs: environmental, geological and flood data.

Available as PDF and GIS.

Scottish Insight delivers detailed and accurate information using extensive datasets, helping you to provide an informed and helpful opinion for your clients.

Our Historic Land Use Database (HLUD) gives the most accurate and reliable information available on the market. It is derived from Ordnance Survey mapping dating back to the 1840s, scanned in at over 500dpi – setting a new industry standard.

Scottish Insight includes a MasterMap Siteplan as standard (for sites under 20ha), and also provides detailed flood and geology information. Each section of the report is clearly defined and hyperlinked from the contents, plus we provide individual maps for each section for additional clarity and to simplify interpretation.

Our in-house team of specialists, who continually update the report with the latest terminology and data to provide you with even greater certainty in your opinion.
