This handsome map of Scotland delineates the counties and shows countless place names, harbors, islands, rivers, mountains, shoals, bays and firths. At lower left is a beautifully engraved rococo cartouche. This is the second state with Flannan Isle moved west of the Western Isles and the addition of St. Kilda, published circa 1768.
