This website makes data and information on Scotland’s soils available to anyone who needs it. You can look at a range of maps and download the data associated with these maps. We also point to other useful sources of data and information. We aim to make it easy for you to find what you need.

We outline the importance of our soils, what they do for us, how well they do it and what happens when they are damaged.

The website is part of the wider Scotland’s environment website family and was created in partnership by a number of organisations.
