Map Detail
Name: Pont, Timothy, 1560?-1614?  
Title: [River Nethy] - Pont 6 (back)  
Imprint: [ca. 1583-96]
Pagination: 1 manuscript map ; 41 x 28 cm.
Shelfmark: Adv.MS.70.2.9 (Pont 6v)
Notes: This is the back of the manuscript known as Pont 6. It contains two small maps referred to as Pont 6(2) and Pont 6(3). The front of the manuscript contains a third map, Pont 6(1). Of the two maps shown here, Pont 6(2) is a small, rather sparse map, showing the River Nethy and its tributaries from the point it enters the River Spey. It includes the settlement of Abyrnetthy (Abernethy). Pont 6(3) is a very small map of the River Dulnain (a tributary of the River Spey) at Duthill, north east of Carrbridge.
  • This area is also represented on Pont 6 (front), but here it is drawn amended and at a larger scale.
  • This map has been overdrawn in darker ink, probably by Robert Gordon.
  • In the original and now rather faint ink there are four notes. One, in French, reads pour enquerir de cest Rivier. Another, in English, at Scheeles (top), says:
  • all wood
    fyr & other
    w[i]th great

Pont 6(3) River Dulnain
  • A very small map of the River Dulnain at Duthill, north east of Carrbridge. This river is a tributary of the River Spey.

  • For both (2) and (3) see also Pont 6 front.
  • Of the manuscript maps by Gordon, the following sheets are the most relevant to this area: 3, 5, 24, and 25.
  • Blaeu's printed maps Aberdonia & Banfia and Braid-Allaban are particularly relevant. In addition, his Extima Scotiae includes the far north of the area.
