2. Geography and Structure

2.1 Geographical areas (Map 1)

Each agricultural holding is allocated to one of the 891 parishes in Scotland, ranging in area from about 60 hectares to 113,000 hectares. These parishes can then be aggregated up to the higher geographies like local authority ( LA), sub-region (groupings of LAs) and region. The table below shows which local authorities lie within each region and sub-region.

Most, though not all parishes lie wholly within a single LA area. Where a parish straddles LA boundaries, the whole parish is assigned to the LA in which the majority of the parish's area is located.
