1. Figures may not sum due to rounding.

2. Land areas were derived from the latest local authority boundaries produced by Ordnance Survey. Figures may not add exactly because of rounding. Source: https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/business-and-government/products/boundaryline.html.

3. From 2011 Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park took responsibility for surveying vacant and derelict land within the park boundaries. These sites are no longer recorded in Argyll and Bute, Perth and Kinross, Stirling and West Dunbartonshire local authority boundaries, and are separately identifiable as Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park from 2011. Prior to 2011 these sites were classified within the relevant local authority boundary.

4. Although the land area for Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park is separately identified it is also included within the land area for the relevant local authorities that overlap the park. Therefore the total land area for Scotland does not include this separately identified land area for Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.

5. Data for Highland is carried over from 2015.
