This delightfully handcoloured, detailed and extremely rare map of Inverness, Moray and Aberdeenshire was originally published in 1690 by Valk & Schenk, a master mapmaking duo that worked out of Amsterdam in the 17th century.
This map extends from roughly Inverness, Loch Ness and Cromarty in the Scottish Highlands on the left, to Aberdeen on the right with Moray in the middle. The map reaches quite far south - all the way to Dundee and Perth on the River Tay. The borders were a bit different back then, though.
Curiously, this map shows both Old and New Aberdeen - they would be officially joined in 1891 into just 'Aberdeen'.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (31x41cm), 18x24 inches (45.5x61cm) and 24x36 inches (61x91.5cm), but it looks even better when printed large.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 90 inches (228cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 20x16 inch (51x40.5cm) version of this map.
If you’re looking for something slightly different, another option would be this amazing map of Aberdeen by Tallis & Rapkin in 1851.
Many of the towns, villages and cities of the region are already visible in this map.
The locations on this map include: Aberdeen (Old Aberdeen & New Aberdeen), Stonehaven (Stonhaven), Peterhead, Fraserburgh, Inverurie (Inner Ourie), Angus and you can also see the Loch Ness.
This would make a wonderful birthday, Christmas, work leaving or housewarming gift for someone from Scotland or someone who has Aberdeen close to their heart.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
