This finely engraved sheet shows views, from distant hills, of the towns of Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Sterling, Glasgow, Channery, St.Andrews and Montrose. The general layout of the towns can be clearly seen. Castles depicted are Sterling, Edinburgh, Dunotyr and The Bass. The Bass Rock, or simply the Bass, is an island in the outer part of the Firth of Forth in the east of Scotland. Approximately 2 kilometres offshore, and 5 kilometres north-east of North Berwick, it is a steep-sided volcanic rock, 107 metres at its highest point, and is now home to a large colony of gannets. The rock is currently uninhabited, but historically has been settled by an early Christian hermit, and at the time of the map was the site of an important castle, which after 1660 was used as a prison. The island now belongs to Sir Hew Hamilton-Dalrymple. The Bass Rock Lighthouse was constructed on the rock in 1902, and the remains of an ancient chapel still survive. The Bass Rock features in fiction, including R. L. Stevenson's Catriona and Ross Laidlaw's The Lion is Rampant. An attractive summary of the Scottish landscape and cities.
