Heavy rain and flooding are a regular occurrence throughout much of the year in Scotland, putting many homes at risk.

Whether you live in a rural area or own a property in an urban setting, flooding can pose a very real threat to where you live.

Whether you've just recently bought a home or are curious to see the flood risk in other areas, here is how you can find out.

How do I find out my home's flood risk in Scotland?

The best way to see your home's flood risk in Scotland is by visiting the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) website.

Here, you will see a search bar where you will be able to type in your postcode before selecting your address.

Once this has been completed, the flood risk information for a circular area of 50 meters around your property will be revealed.

This includes information on the risk from surface water, nearby rivers and coastal areas.

Even if you've never experienced flooding at your property before, SEPA explains: "An area can still be at risk of flooding even if it has not flooded in the past."

This data incorporates information from the Ordinance Survey.

Find out more about your home's flood risk on the Scottish Environment Protection Agency website.
