4.0 out of 5 stars One of the better ones, 1 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: North and Mid Wales (OS Travel Series - Tourist Map) (OS Travel Map - Tour Map) (Paperback)
This map is proof that in this era of low-cost road atlases, there is still a place for a good road map.

The sheet covers the whole of Mid and North Wales from Cardigan northwards plus some of the adjacent areas of England. The scale of 1:175k shows the road network and general topography in the sort of detail useful to someone who doesn't just want to get from A to B by the shortest or quickest route. The relief shading I particularly liked - I still don't understand why most maps/atlases have done away with this.

There are also small inset maps of the main towns of the region.

My one criticism is that national cycle routes aren't marked on the map. Although these are shown on a small-scale inset (at a scale of about 1:1M) this is of no help whatsoever in locating the actual way-marked routes on the ground. A little more work by the map-setters and the routes could have been depicted in the main map. For those who want that detail, visit the Ordnance survey website, go to customised maps, scroll down the appropriate region at 1:50K then mark the cycle routes on your 1:175K hardcopy as required. With those details added, this becomes a handy map for the cyclist who doesn't want to be bothered carrying a bagful of 50K sheets.

It's a real shame this scale isn't available for the whole of the UK

A practical map, with a lot of activities in the area shown. The map could sometimes be a bit more detailed, some hamlets are not shown.

The problem with the OS tourist maps is that they are not a constant scale , one map can be very different from another . This is about right for the 40-50mph tourist , you don't run off a fold too quickly but it still has plenty of detail. For me it replaced a Michelin so old that Telford was called Dawley!

Easy to follow, a large map so has lots of detail.
Especially good in conjunction with the rough guide.
Recommend to road-trippers.

A small scale of the area. Ideal for motoring but too small scale for walking. Useful for planning in advance of holiday

This map shows just about any road or dirt track in Wales. It was a great supplement to the GPS to get an overview during our tour of Wales.
