Handmade to order
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.
This map was originally dissected into 16 regions, mounted on linen, and then folded up into a black leather book.
The ideal size for this map is 24x36 inches (60x90cm), but I have two smaller versions at 16x20 and 18x24 inches (40x50cm and 45x60cm). It may be quite hard to read the smallest labels on the smaller maps. I can also print extra large versions of this map up to 80x53 inches (200x135cm), 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

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
