The Cateran Trail South– The Pentland Hills, Scotland
The Cateran Trail is a circular challenge for people who love the long distances around the Perthshire Hills. Located just an hour and half north of Edinburgh and Glasgow, the route takes you through some of the most remote and hidden areas of Scotland.
This 2 series map (for the full trail order the The Cateran Trail South as well) has been specifically commissioned for the 2017 Cateran Yomp, a charity walk in aid of service men. However, its beautifully clear and precise cartography on a versatile and light-weight fabric mean it’s the ultimate walking map of the region for anybody to use.
“The Yomp (a military term for a long-distance march) is an epic adventure challenge. Teams of 3-6 people take on 54 miles (gold) in 24 hours across the rugged terrain of the Scottish wilderness. There is also a 36.5 (silver) or a 22 (bronze) mile option.”
Simple to follow and almost totally indestructible this is the same Ordnance Survey 1:25k mapping you’d find in the OS’s own Explorer maps. We’ve simply centred it so that the two overlapping maps cover the whole trail.
- Unparalleled detail and coverage -our 72 x 72cm map covers the terrain for all three challenges.
- Practical print on practical material – our maps are on a versatile weatherproof fabric. They’ll be on hand when you need, don’t need folding and shrug-off any kind of weather.
- Uncluttered, no nonsense cartography -this map is not overburdened with Sponsorship logos and other nonsense. It’s all designed around helping you.
Not only will the maps guide you around the trail, but they make excellent souvenirs of the occasion and of course they have all the wonderful properties of the original SplashMaps; waterproof, tear-proof, breathable, washable, very wearable and able to be scrunched up for easy storage.
