More Maps from the National Library of Scotland

Recently added, 20th-century military maps to the NLS website, including very detailed plans of defensive works in and around the Forth and Clyde estuaries, constructed before and during the First World War. These formerly classified plans were the most detailed surveys of these sites, and allow the terrain and defences to be scrutinized in minute detail.

    1. Forth military defences (1911-18)
    2. Clyde military defences (1904-18)

Also online are detailed town plans of AberdeenDundeeEdinburgh, and Glasgow, along with various special series maps. These series maps include some of the attractive and colourful Ordnance Survey Tourist Series, special Administrative District Maps of Glasgow, as well as geological and soil maps.
