About prints, maps and views of Scotland

Timothy Pont surveyed most of Scotland in 1565. He died in 1610 without knowing that his surveys would be published by W & J Blaeu in 1654. I have a large selection of antique maps of Scotland. I also have many antique views.

My heart’s in the Highlands, my
heart is not here,
My heart’s in the Highlands
a- chasing the deer;
A-chasing the wild deer, and
following the roe,
My heart’s in the Highlands
wherever I go.

Robert Burns (1759-1796)

Scotland is bounded by the sea on all sides except the south, where it adjoins England. It consists of the Highlands in the north and west, and the Lowlands, in the south and east. The line of division is marked by a valley or plain, from the foot of the Grampians, to the Clyde  estuary.

On the high mountain tops, ptarmigan, mountain hare, and stoat can be seen in their white winter coats. In the remnants of the native Scots pine forests, the Scotish crossbill, capercaille, wild cat,  red squirrel, pine martin and the golden eagle exist. There are many seals and nesting grounds for a variety of seabirds.

Edinburgh is the country’s capital, and Glasgow became the world’s pre-eminent shipbuilding centre. The
Clydeside shipyards specialised in steamships made of iron (after 1870, made of steel), which rapidly replaced the wooden sailing vessels of both the merchant fleets and the battle fleets of the world.
In 1706 The Treaty of Union was agreed between representatives of the Scots Parliament and the Parliament of England, and in the following year 1707 the united Kingdom of Great Britain was created.
