Places in the UK Where Nobody Lives

Inspired by Nik’s thought-provoking map of unpopulated areas of the United States, Georgia Corr wondered what a similar map of Great Britain –  an island renowned for an imbalance between landmass and population – would look like.  Are there uninhabited places at all? The resulting map is based on the most recent 2011 census, with a spatial resolution of 1km x 1km grids. There is a total of 114421 grids, and 1784 of them have no inhabitants. Not a high number, is it?
