This handsome map of Scotland delineates the counties and shows countless place-names, harbors, islands, as well as rivers, mountains, shoals, bays and firths. At lower left is a beautifully engraved rococo cartouche. This is the first state with Flannan Isle too close to the Western Isles.

Nice impression and color with a short repaired tear just entering map at bottom center.
