This map layer has been supplied directly by Marine Scotland National Marine Plan interactive. You can obtain additional information about the layer on this page
This layer shows the population density (persons per hectare) estimate by locality. The estimate is derived from the report "Mid-2016 Population Estimates for Settlements and Localities in Scotland" by National Records of Scotland (NRS). Localities correspond to the more recognisable towns and cities of Scotland which can be found within settlements. They also have a minimum rounded population of 500 people or more. The locality data sets are updated every 2 years.
