Lithographic folding map, sheet size 83.5 x 113.5 cm, printed in colours, one or two light marginal creases, laid on linen and folding into cloth covers with colour-printed publisher’s label, slightly rubbed, repeated on both covers.

Printed for the Gleneagles Hotel, one of the last great luxury railway hotels, which was opened in 1924 and operated by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway Company. The hotel is at the heart of the map, which is flanked by bold examples of railway heraldry. Should guests tire of golf or shooting, the map is rich in places of historical or literary interest or outstanding natural beauty, all to be found within easy striking distance of the hotel by road or rail. An inset map in the North Sea locates Gleneagles in the LMS network.
