Here is a link to the National Library of Scotland's Database of maps of... well... Scotland. LOTS of very high quality maps, organised by creation date. Goes all the way back to 1100 i think, right up to modern. Kinda neat to see how mapping evolved and the different styles from the Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Normands, ect.

Thanks a lot. This is great. Especially good to see old maps of places you know. My home town is on them - even the 16th century ones! As a note though, it is the National Library of Scotland - there is no University of Scotland.

Very nice site.

FYI Its not very Firefox friendly. Most of the larger zooms are only avialable in IE.
