400 HIGHLAND ESTATE MAPS digitised and made available online

A collection of 400 historic maps relating to the Lovat Highland Estates, covering extensive areas west of Inverness, are now available to researchers, thanks to a project involving Lovat highland estates (based in Beauly), the North of Scotland Archaeological Society and National Library of Scotland

The maps were discovered by Ronald Spencer-Jones of the North of Scotland Archaeological Society (NOSAS), who was carrying out a survey of the lands of Urchany, a multi-period deserted settlement, at the Lovat estage offices in Beauly. Whilst examining a map of the lands he realised that the office contained many other maps, some of which were unknown, even to the estate manager. Ronald was given permission to carry out a full cataloguing of the maps.
