Each of the sheets below is "double-elephant" size, 27 x 40 inches, or 69 x 102 cm
For Ayrshire and Peebles-shire, although our index here only shows 6" to the mile sheet lines, maps were also surveyed and published at the 25" to the mile scale, which (as for other county maps) cover 4 x 4 sixteenths of the 6" rectangles.
Six Scottish counties (Edinburghshire, Fife, Haddingtonshire, Kinross-shire, Kirkcudbrightshire, and Wigtonshire) as well as the Island of Lewis have no 25 inch to the mile mapping before the 1890s. These counties had already been surveyed at the six inch scale, before the decision was taken to survey at 25 inch in 1855. Those counties surveyed after 1855 have 25 inch and six-inch to the mile coverage.
