about this item
National Geographic's Scotland Adventure Map provides global travelers with the perfect combination of detail and perspective in a highly functional travel tool. Whether you are taking in the local culture, playing a round in the "home of golf," or climbing one of Scotland's many peaks over 3,000 feet ? a feat known as "munro bagging" ? this is the map to get you there. Cities and towns are clearly indicated and easy to find in the user-friendly index. A road network complete with distances and designations for roads, motorways, expressways, secondary roads, and more will help you find the route that's right for you. With specialty content to include hundreds of diverse and unique recreational, ecological, cultural, and historical destinations, this map is a perfect companion to any guidebook.
Start your adventure at the Cairngorm Plateau, the highest continual expanse of mountainous terrain in the whole of Britain. Visit the village of Dunkeld, a highland gateway village and the ancient capital of Scotland. Along the way you'll see the great Loch Ness and the ruins of Urquhart Castle. The northern half of the print map covers the Western Isles, the Isle of Skye, and the cities of Inverness and Aberdeen. Inset maps provide greater detail of the Orkney and Shetland Islands. Glasgow, Edinburgh, and the lowlands are covered on the other half of the map.
Every Adventure Map is printed on durable synthetic paper, making them waterproof, tear-resistant and tough — capable of withstanding the rigors of international travel.
