Ordnance Survey Landranger maps are superbly designed for the traveler who really wants to explore an area by automobile or on foot or bicycle. At a scale of 1:50,000, the multicolored presentation provides good detail on terrain, physical features, and human infrastructure. Key margin information is printed in English, French, and German.
Aberdeen is one of the major cities of Scotland, the necessary land hub for Britain's North Sea oil exploitation but also the entrance to Royal Deeside as far west as Banchory. The valley of the river Dee tracks straight into the heart of the Grampain Mountains and the Scottish Highlands. Visitors will therefore find a modern city on a shorline with long beaches on a cold sea, backed by rolling countryside studded with small towns and an attractive selection of castles set amid forest. At the far end of Deeside (and off this map) is the royal retreat of Balmoral Castle.
Ordnance Survey Landranger Map #38 Aberdeen is very highly recommended for those travelers planning to explore either the coast or enter Royal Deeside in search of adventure.
