The unique collection of over 100,000 plans held by the National Archives of Scotland clearly illustrates the transformations wrought by changing methods of agriculture, land improvement, rural industry and the revolution in transport since 1700. With detailed commentary by curator Rosemary Gibson, the 93 maps, plans and illustrations reproduced here - from 18th century plans of runrig and commonty lands to a 1920s smallholding scheme - provide snapshots of the Scottish countryside through three centuries of change.
