A climate change study has revealed that multiple areas of Scotland could be underwater by the end of the decade.

The study has been conducted by Climate Central, an independent organisation of leading scientists and journalists who research climate change and its impact on the public.

The organisation used current projections to produce a map showing which areas would be underwater by 2030.

The map gives an in-depth look at areas across the country, showing the specific effects climate change could have. You can view your area on the map here.

The worst affected areas are of course those with coastal fronts and sharing banks with rivers.

Areas along the River Clyde such as Inverclyde and Largs see significant losses, as well as Dumbarton.

Glasgow City remains unaffected; however, Clydebank and the surrounding areas see a significant loss of land as the water expands from Black Cart Water.

In the Highlands, Inverness sees a substantial loss of land. From the Kessock Bridge as far inland as Friars Lane Climate Central predictions to be underwater.

Along the north east coast, mostly every area loses a portion of land. This is the same along the north west coast, although not as significant.

The Western Isles also see some land loss in coastal areas. The town of Stornoway would see much of its land lost to flooding as well as the nearby villages of Melbost, New Valley and Tong.

In the East, Aberdeen sees a small section of land loss, mainly in the Old Aberdeen area.

Climate Central also predicts flooding around the River Tyne. This covers a wide area that would in 2030 be underwater.

Some land loss is seen in Leith, in Edinburgh as well as in Musselburgh.

In the Perth area, significant land loss is seen around the Rivers Tay and Earn. The degree of land loss is followed along the banks to Dundee, where much of the coastal land is lost.

Fife follows trends with the rest of the country, with projected land loss being most significant in coastal areas. North Queensferry appears to be the most affected by this.

Around the Borders, the River Nith and surrounding areas shows large amounts of projected land loss. Dumfries, Gretna Green and Annan are all affected.

However, Climate Central admits the calculations that have led to fears of a nightmare scenario include "some error".

It says: "These maps incorporate big datasets, which always include some error. These maps should be regarded as screening tools to identify places that may require deeper investigation of risk."

The maps have been based on "global-scale datasets for elevation, tides and coastal flood likelihoods" and "imperfect data is used".

Somewhat comfortingly, Climate Central adds: "Our approach makes it easy to map any scenario quickly and reflects threats from permanent future sea-level rise well.

"However, the accuracy of these maps drops when assessing risks from extreme flood events.

"Our maps are not based on physical storm and flood simulations and do not take into account factors such as erosion, future changes in the frequency or intensity of storms, inland flooding, or contributions from rainfall or rivers."

But it adds: "Improved elevation data indicate far greater global threats from sea level rise and coastal flooding than previously thought, and thus greater benefits from reducing their causes."
