Map of Inverness taken from 'Guide to the Highlands and Wester Islands of Scotland including Orkney and Zetland vol 2 (4th edition)' by George and Peter Anderson.

The map is described at the top as "Eastern Portion" and only stretches as far west as Loch Affric and Ben Nevis and as far north as the Black Isle. Underneath the map name at the bottom right it says 'The mainland, with Ross, Sutherland and Caithness formed the Ancient shire. The Islands formed part of the Inis Gall - or Isles of the Strangers'.

The top right hand corner of the map contains an Index of Parishes with parish names and their numbers on the map. A line across the top of the map says 'Levels of the Caledonian Canal_60½ miles long of which 23 are artificial (15 feet deep) the rest natural_28 locks_opened in 1822_cost 990,000'
