Roads in the 1600's: The Maps of Timothy Pont

Borders Overview


The map below covers the Eskdale, Lauderdale, Liddesdale, the Merse, Teviotdale and Tweeddale sheets in the Blaeu atlas and shows river crossings and placenames occuring on the sheets.

There is also a map showing routes suggested by text written by or derived from Pont. This can be used in conjunction with the route maps for other areas (Ayrshire, Clydesdale, Lothians) to get a general impression of what routes there might have been.
