Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Aberdeen


We have published more than 2,400 maps in our series of Old Ordnance Survey Map reprints; this includes more than 150 in Scotland. The maps are highly detailed. They are taken from the OS 1:2,500 (or 25 inch) maps and reduced to about 15 inches to the mile. Each covers an area of a mile and a half by a mile. They show streets with individual houses, tram tracks, railway tracks and even signals, factories, wharves and such details as fountains and water troughs. They will provide hours of fascination for historians and genealogists. The maps are neatly folded and each includes a specially written introduction to the area. Maps can be purchased through our On-line Mapshop. Or visit The Index Page for a full list to the series and details of Prices.
