Over 400 Year Old Map of Renfewshire on Show

Hello All -

At the Library of Scotland their will be on show of an old map of Renfrewshire, at least 400 years old, created by Timothy Pont. This will be a rare glimpse into seeing cartography from the 16th century. I am a big one for maps myself, so this is so interesting to see all the "old" names in the Renfrewshire area that are still here today. The full article about the map can be read here:
