Where are SSSIs found?

Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) range in size from very small, like Bo'mains Meadow near Falkirk at just under a hectare, to very large, such as the Cairngorms which extends to over 29,000 hectares.  At 1 February 2014, there were 1,425 SSSIs covering just under 1,020,000 hectares or 12.7% of Scotland.

Details on specific SSSIs are available using Scottish Natural Heritage's SiteLink external site function.  You can search for a site by name, or by using a map.
