I constantly get asked about good maps to plan out trips through Scotland. Michelin really gives you a good one. Large so 'baby boomer' eyes can see all the details. It's clearly marked so it's very easy to use, with a trip times chart. I especially liked they have the outer isle marked well. Some maps of Scotland will skimp on these. So if you are going to Lewis or Skye then this one is hand.

So if you are planning a trip, remember is Whisky without the e, and a neep is a turnip and a turnip is a pumpkin.

Slainte Mhor!!

This map is HUGE and I would not be able to recommend it as your in-car navigational tool. I'm trying to use it to plan a driving vacation in Scotland. The tourist attractions are not particularly well marked. For example, the mark for a castle or historic house is a VERY small black outlined rectangle with no other color to it. Archaeological and historical sites don't seem to be listed at all.

I'm using the map, guide books, and the internet to find the required information. It is too late for me, but if your purpose in buying this map is the same as mine, I would keep looking for a map geared for the tourist.

The map was quite legible, and seemed accurate. But it was very unwieldy, due to its large size. Trying to unfold and fold it in a small car just didn't work.

The Michelin Scotand Regional Map is invaluable for auto-touring in Scotland. At a 1/400,000 scale, it covers all of Scotland on one large, folded map, updated annually, yet is in sufficient detail to enable navigation from town to town. Its multi-colored presentation and simplified graphics allows the experienced map-reader to dope out a sense of terrain as a navigation aid. It includes an index of cities, towns, and major villages, and inset maps of Glasgow and Edinburgh, the major cities.

It is fair to note a couple of shortcomings. The paper format wears poorly under repeated refolding of the map to get at an area of interest, and tends not to survive close encounters with coffee or tea. However, when supplemented with Ordnance Survey large scale maps for hiking or other off-the-road activities, the Michelin Scotland Regional Map is highly recommended as an invaluable aid for exploring Scotland.

HUGE...but the detail was needed. Could have added some city maps of Edinburgh...and others. We also took along a gps which is a must. This map, gave us the chance to plan our journeys. Well worth the money.

The level of detail in this map tempts you to think that it may be all you need - but only if you're sticking to the fairly major roadways. There are a lot of the small short country lanes represented - but determining which one you're on or which one you need can be a challenge when the road signs only list towns too small to be on the map. And definitely do not assume that you can successfully navigate the intricate windings of Edinburgh using the inset map here. That said, it was a very handy general planning and orientation tool and not as unweildy in the car as its overall size might indicate - you can usually open just a couple of folds that show the area of interest.

This clear, bright topo and road map is the typical Michelin high quality paper map.
Paper is sturdy. Scale is useful. I have large book maps and small regional and local maps as well. This one gives a great "the whole country" view for planning and navigation.

Like many of the other reviewers, I found this map WAY too big to use comfortably in the car. Why not print on both sides and split the country up? Completely unfolded, I think the map must be about 6 ft square -- I may be exaggerating, but that's how it seemed to me.
