This is a beautiful old geological map of Scotland. One of the first geology maps of Scotland, it is actually the first sketch of a Scottish geology map put together by Roderick I. Murchison and Archibald Geikie (director of the Geological Survey of Scotland) and published by AK Johnston in 1862.

It is incredibly rare to have a full colour, highly detailed map of Scotland from the 1800s. The detail is really quite astonishing. This is one of the most colourful and interesting antique maps of Scotland that you'll ever find.

Every part of Scotland is clearly visible in this map - from the Shetland Isles, to Orkney, to the Hebrides and Skye. Loch Ness is here, as is Loch Lomond. The interesting geological formations between Glasgow and Edinburgh. Even the rather interestingly coloured tip of the Mull of Kintyre...

Almost every town and city of Scotland is shown on this map, and some villages too. Inverness, Portree, Dundee. You can even zoom in and see the jutting prominence of the Quiraing on Skye.

The original size of this map was 16x20 inches (40x50cm) but it looks great at all sizes from 12x16 inches, to 18x24 inches and 24x36 inches (60x90cm). It may be quite hard to read the smallest labels on the 12x16 inch map. I can also print extra large versions of this map up to 37x50 inches (95x125cm), if you have a suitably large space for it (a hotel, office, or very large empty wall space at home). It's a stunning map at larger sizes.

You can buy just the map, or you can buy a framed version. The framed version has a nice, simple black frame that will make the map pop out nicely on your wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a framed version of one of the larger maps.

This is a lovely, highly detailed map that would look great on any wall - and it would make a lovely birthday or Christmas gift for someone from Scotland or who has Scotland in their heart.

I also have a similar map of geology and palaeontology for the whole British Isles: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/820883964/old-geology-map-of-uk-and-ireland-1854

 

All of my maps are well packaged and sent in a rugged tube if unframed, or surrounded by foam if framed.

I try to send out all maps within 1 or 2 days of receiving your order, though some products (like face masks or mugs) can take longer to make.

If you select the free worldwide shipping option, you can usually expect to receive your map around 10 days after you order. It may be faster or slower, depending on the impact of coronavirus in your country.

If you select Express Delivery at checkout your order will be sent by courier (Fedex, DHL, UPS, Parcelforce) and will usually arrive in 2-3 days.

Customers in the US, Australia and Canada: Your map will be sent from a printer or framer in your country, which means you'll get your map sooner, you won't pay import duties, and we'll put less CO2 into the atmosphere. I have worked with some great printers and framers around the world for years - so don't worry, your map will still look amazing!
