    Absolutely the best source for historical maps - National Library of Scotland.

    Another resource I have found handy (although not for wall maps) is a series of books Halliwell Pocket Walking Guides by Paul Williams - their website is at www.pocketwalks.com but they are also available on Amazon.

    They are small pocket-sized books and each is dedicated to specific area of Scotland and details 20 or more hikes and walks in that area. There are about 30 books in the series covering the Highlands and Islands, plus a few more for parts of England - see image below form their website:
    This is a really interesting resource. Thanks for posting!

    This is the map my wife and I used on our first Scotland trip, in the 1980s.

    Superb and beautiful map which got us around the Highlands and Islands (as well as everywhere else) quite well.

    BTW my wife has been a professional cartographer for over 30 years now. She started when maps were still hand-drawn and now works for a cartographic software developer.
