Creating Caledonia: The Great Polish Map of Scotland

Learn about the story, creation and rebirth of The Great Polish Map of Scotland, one of this country’s most remarkable landmarks.

The Great Polish Map of Scotland, located at Barony Castle in Peebles, Borders, is an outstanding feat of cartography, geography and engineering. Proposed by Polish Second World War veteran Jan Tomasik and designed by Dr Kazimierz Trafas, the vast relief map of mainland Scotland and Western Isles is fifty metres in length and forty metres wide. After falling into disrepair and neglect in the 1980s and 90s, the Map was lovingly restored over the past decade, reopening in 2018.

Learn about the past, present and future of this remarkable gift to the Scottish people from three of the Mapa Scotland organisation’s trustees: architect David Cameron, engineer Keith Burns and Trust Secretary Maja Kozłowska.
