Scottish maps

The National Library of Scotland has a collection of over 6,000 maps, high-resolution and zoomable for the Kingdom. You'll find whole country maps starting in the 16th century, county maps, town maps and views, marine and Admiralty charts, military, Ordnance Survey and estate maps. Even areas associated with some of my English ancestry, from the debatable lands, north of Hadrian's Wall but not in Scotland, is well represented in the collection.
