Sheet 1 contains the map title, 'Map of Scotland from the latest Surveys'. The top of the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides can be seen at the foot of the map.

New techniques had helped Scotland become one of the best mapped countries of the 17th-century world. This trend continued and more improved maps became a boon to travellers. Scotland became better known to Scots and to visitors alike.
