vintage style map of Cairngorms National Park with Council sections 

Stunning contemporary design inspired by antique european cartographic styles from the 19th and early 20th centuries.


the artwork

The coloured sections on the map are the portions of the different council areas that make up the National Park. Detailed and carefully applied hill shading brings the landscape alive. All Munros, Munro Tops and Corbetts are distinctly applied and labelled.  


the product

product size:

Large: 100 cm x 70 cm (original design size)

Small: 84.1 cm x 59.4 cm (a1)

product types:

print only on paper: print only on paper: 270gsm beautiful, off-white ivory fine art archival paper with a colour-stable coating. Prints are designed to last on this colour-stable, lignin-free, buffered paper. Combined with the latest fine art inkjet printing technology with guarantees of the artworks colour integrity for up to 200 years.


I have printed samples on countless papers and this produces by far the best results that are true to the artwork and of the highest quality


framed print: the artwork is printed on our beautiful ivory litho paper and dry mounted to a 5mm thick art foam to ensure it is perfectly stable and perfectly flat. This is essential because the paper can easily be affected by changes in moisture and temperature, causing the paper to expand and contract. This will cause ripples and undulations visible behind any glazing. For proper artwork, get it properly mounted. 


The back is sealed and dressed with brown framing tape to prevent dust, grime and creepy crawlies getting in. A string hanger is firmly fitted across the back and elegant little cushions on the bottom corners attached so it's ready to hang and comfortable on the wall. 


framed canvas print: artwork printed on polyester cotton canvas. The artwork is stretched around a stretcher frame and fixed in place before being set in the display frame of your choice. The same brown frame tape, string hanger and cushions are added to the back. Remember there is no glazing for canvas prints, the artwork is exposed, which is fabulous for viewing the work from any angle around the room as there is no glare.  There are adjustable fittings on the back around the frame keeping the inner stretcher frame and artwork in place. 


frame options: there are 4 frame choices available from the cartographic arts. two matte black options, one thick and one thin, and two of a light walnut finish, one thick one thin. 

thin matte black - 21 mm

thick matte black - 28 mm

thin light walnut - 19 mm

thick light walnut 28 mm

the price is the same across all frame types and between framed prints and framed canvas prints. The only change in price occurs with size

There is a complete key and reference, title, scale and compass design unique to the map with specific place names from around the national park in their relative positions on the compass. I have also added a basic Gaelic and Scots geographic placenames coomparative index. 


An information section on sites of significant historical and cultural interest is included with reference across the map. these are sourced and researched from the National Trust for Scotland, Historic Environment Scotland and Britain Express with a few others included based on personal choice. These are important to include but wouldn't necessarily be covered by these organisations, but offer significant interest to the history and culture of the area covered by the National Park.
