Click to view Index Map

The Geological Survey of Scotland adopted the first edition sheet layout and numbering system of the Ordnance Survey for Scotland and did not vary from it; i.e. there is no Old Series or New Series as in England and Wales. The first one inch geological maps were published in 1859. The first Drift editions began in 1906 and colour printing in 1910. After 1946, the National Grid was introduced on the OS base map. Publication of the Geological Survey at the one inch scale was never completed before metrication and the intention is to complete the survey at 1:50,000 scale. The Scottish one inch maps did not have sections included even after colour printing was introduced. In 1945 the National Grid was introduced as a grid of 1km squares on all UK topographic and geological maps. While extremely useful for giving coordinates of features, cartographically, it cluttered the appearance of geological maps.

The list below is in two parts. The hand coloured early maps are listed first, followed by the later colour printed maps.
