Peter Burgess says:
“In the Lake District I know where particular mountains are located and it’s easy to create a mental image in your mind as to the relationships between each top. In Scotland it felt nigh on impossible. I had heard of the great mountains and even read and seen photographs of them. Am Bodach, The Devil’s Point, Am Basteir and Ben Wyvis – all sounded brilliant but where were they and how did they relate to each other on the ground?
In creating this map, I’ve not only learnt a lot about Scotland and its fantastic mountains, listed by Hugh Munro, but - like the tube map itself - it began to make sense. Looking at a large OS map wall map of Scotland can be quite overwhelming but, with all the details stripped away and with the basic information revealed, I hope you agree “MunrOverground” helps to show the Munros and their relationship with one another a little more clearly. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed mapping Scotland and I hope my latest creation helps you to explore and realise the potential of this fantastic place”.
