As part of wide-ranging efforts to provide Scotland’s land managers, agencies and the public with open access resources, the James Hutton Institute has progressively been digitising the published one inch to the mile (1:63,360) and 1:50,000 Soil Survey of Scotland maps, which now cover the Orkney Islands and land south-east of Inverness.
These maps were derived from more detailed 1:25,000 scale field survey, which have provided the basis for these digital maps.
