ScotlandsPeople adds Maps and Plans

I've blogged previously about the maps available from the National Library of Scotland. Something about them must be contagious as ScotlandsPeople have recently made available more than 2,400 historic maps, plans and drawings from National Records of Scotland (NRS) collections.

According to this post "Spanning four centuries, the collections cover both manuscript and printed topographical maps and plans. They are particularly strong in estate and railway plans; architectural drawings; and engineering drawings, particularly of ships, railway engines and rolling stock."

It appears access requires log on to ScotlandsPeople but there is no charge to view the maps and plans.
