Title: West Highland Railway Mallaig Extension Plan showing land to be Acquired from Lord Lovat  
Imprint: 1897 ?
Pagination: 1 map; 40 x 232 cm.
Shelfmark: Lovat390
Notes: 1:2540. (1000' = 12 cm ).
Part of a disposition, kept in the Estate Office Disposition Book. Seems to show the land to be compulsorily acquired to build the Mallaig railway line. The line took four years to build, and was opened in 1901. Hence a map date of 1897 seems reasonable guess..
