'Oldest' map of Scotland to be auctioned

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A map - claimed to be the oldest accurate chart of Scotland - is to be auctioned off in Edinburgh.

The historic document, known as The Nicolay Rutter, is said to have been drawn up from the voyage taken by King James V around Scotland in 1540.

It is acknowledged as being far more accurate than later 17th Century maps.

The item is expected to fetch between £15,000 and £20,000 because of its importance to map-making and political history.

The map has attracted interest from bidders from around the world.
