Historic Maps of Arran Collection


Add interest and a talking point to your décor with these historic maps depicting The Isle of Arran. Beautifully printed on 250gsm silk finish paper these show the mapping of Arran through the years and the interesting spelling of placenames and features.

Arania depicts a recognisable Arran despite the unconventional orientation of the map and shows place names such as 'Brodwick', 'Kildonnen', 'Chordan' and 'Lamlach' which are easily identified as the present day Brodick, Kildonan, Corden and Lamlash although the latter refers to the island in the bay and not the town!
Bute and Arran shows the Isle of Arran as seen by ‘H. Moll Geographer’ (1654-1732) and is inscribed with many recognisable place names such as ‘Frith of Clyd’, ‘Loch Rensa’, Campeltown, ‘Loch Terbart’,and ‘Rothesay’. It is also interesting that Mr Moll felt it important to mark in what is now the South Arran Marine Protected Area that ‘Here is Plenty of Cod!'
This Buteshire map was published by John Thomson & Co, Edinburgh in 1823 and depicts an Arran map that is very similar to modern mapping. In addition to the familiar places such as Lamlash Bay, Loch Ranza and Brodick Bay there are the lesser known ‘Ben Noosh’, ‘Glen Halmidell’ and ‘Fairie Hills’! It is also worth noting that this map was attested by (among others) R. Brown Esq, Factor to the Duke of Hamilton.
