That's really useful. Interesting to see where the old branch lines were laid out and connected to the rail lines still in use. Cheers, Mo. :)

I also liked how on the rail lines it had all the company names too....

If you step up a level in the original link you can get 6" maps for, I think, all of Scotland and 25" maps for some of it.

This bit of one of my local maps amused me.

I've seen some of these before but not with such comprehensive coverage, and not as easy to navigate. Thanks for posting the link up.

One I use a lot is Canmore Mapping, which only covers Scotland.

It's not quite as intuitive as it could be but it's easy enough once you work it out. Historical sites are shown as blue spots which you can select (this is the bit that could be more intuitive) and see the information RCAHMS has on the site. Very handy for identifying features you see on your travels.

Pretty handy stuff, but has anyone else noticed that there are no airfields shown?

shhh!
it's a secret.
Somewhere at home, Dad has a set of maps he used when in the civil defence, all marked as restricted.
Shame those aren't on the web, they showed military installations around the Spalding area of Lincolnshire
