The high places – small mounted print
The high places – small mounted print
Maps are a symbolic representation of a space, commonly countries, regions or towns. They seek to show a three-dimensional area on a flat surface, allowing humans to explain and navigate the world.
The land on paper
Evidence of humans abstracting the world onto a surface can be found as far back as early cave paintings and rock carvings. As civilisation became more and more advanced, so too did our cartographic abilities. Where once the oldest maps were of stars, now we are mapped from the stars – or at least from satellites in space.
About this piece
Scotland is known for its high places. From rolling hills to jagged mountains, few parts of the country are far from some magnificent vistas and every year thousands flock to take them in.
Not many of us know the origins of our place names. This map, created along with the This contemporary graphic map uses rich brown tones to detail contoured areas that demonstrate just how much of Scotland is high land. The three main high areas are clearly separated by the giant slice of the Great Glen and, further south, the central belt.

Why I don't offer free shipping
As a small business, I source the products in my shop as locally and ethically as I can and I keep those products as affordably priced as possible when I sell them. Because of this – and because I pay my fair share of taxes – I cannot offer free shipping.
