Scotland has had a uniquely important military history over the last five centuries. Conflicts, rebellions. two world wars and the Cold War all resulted in significant cartographic activity. 

Christopher Fleet, Senior Map Curator at the National Library of Scotland, explores the extraordinarily rich legacy of Scottish military mapping (some of them reproduced in book form for the first time) including fortification plans, reconnaissance mapping, battle plans, plans of military roads, tactical maps, plans of mines,  and enemy maps showing targets, as well as unrealised proposals and projected schemes.


The Mitchell Library

North Street, Glasgow, G3 7DN

Open today 9:00am - 8:00pm
