Much of what one learns of the Scottish clans emphasizes the more famous Highland Clans. As a descendent of one of the Lowland Clans, I found this map to offer not only an attractive look at the lowlands but also nice detail on the clans. It affirmed what I have always thought, namely the multiple locations of the Armstrong clans in the border region. With the color and detail, the map will nicely complement the more formal map of the Scottish Lowlands that I have from the 19th century.
