About HH
Original on Transparent.png

Highland Hydrology is a small technical consultancy, based in the Highlands of Scotland. Initially operating as sole trader since 2021, the business was formally incorporated as a Ltd Company in February 2024. Due to the small size, the business has low overheads and I can provide competitive quotes for a range of hydrology work. I mainly work within Scotland, with occasional specialist work carried out further afield.

Hydrology cannot always give the answer in isolation and so I commonly work with with engineers, fluvial geomorphologists and botanists (to name a few!).

About me

Dr. Jamie Ledingham, Hydrologist

Since completing an undergraduate degree in Geography in 2006, Masters in Hydrology in 2007 and PhD in Civil Engineering and Geosciences in 2011, I  practiced as a consulting hydrologist for a large engineering firm until 2021.

As a result of undertaking a few independent projects since leaving my last employment, I decided to continue work as a freelance hydrologist and established my own business.

I have a broad range of experience in hydrological studies including flood risk assessment, water resources assessment/modelling, environmental impact assessment, reservoir studies, dispute resolution, water quality assessments and habitat restoration. This range of experience allows me to tackle most hydrological problems.

I am a chartered Scientist (C.Sci) and a member of the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management as well as a member of the British Hydrological Society.


Further details on experience and capability as well as C.V's are available on request.
