This is an exceedingly rare, old full colour map of Scotland, including the Shetland Islands and Orkney, created by master mapmaker Jean Blaeu from his workshop in Amsterdam and originally published in this Theatrum Orbis Terrarum Sive Atlas Novus in 1654.

Back in medieval times Latin was the language of maps, and Scotia Regnum was the medieval Latin name for 'The Kingdom of Scotland'. The map's full name, 'Scotia regnum cum insulis adjacentibus' means 'The Kingdom of Scotland and adjacent islands'.

This old map is essentially two panels: Scotland on the left and Shetland Isles and Orkney on the right.

While there's some Latin on this map, most of the place names are in recognisable English. By 1664, many of Scotland's most well known towns and villages already exist. From Portree to Inverness, Edinburgh to Glasgow, Loch Ness to Loch Lomond, they're all here. Though those place names were spelt a bit differently almost 400 years ago!

This map would certainly make a nice gift for anyone in Scotland, or someone who has Scotland close to their heart.

You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall.
