“Glottiana Praefectura Superior the Upper Ward of Clyds-Dayl”. Incredibly detailed map showing towns, topographical features and two mines.

The slightly ragged eastern boundary runs broadly south southeast, skirting to the east of Caldercruix and on to Dunsyre Hill and finally Dolphinton. The southern boundary encloses the headwaters of the River Clyde at Queensberry hill, between Moffat and Thornhill. Published in Blaeu’s “theatrum Orbis Terrarum Sive Atlas Novus. Pars Quinta”.
