Sibbald, Robert (b.1641, d.1722)
A large scale map of a part of Moray, from the River Spey in the west, as far east as Fordyce, Knock Hill, Huntly (Strathbogie) and Clatt. The map centres on Keith and shows settlement in detail for the catchment of the River Isla, the coast between Cullen and Fochabers, and the middle Deveron. The map was compiled by Robert Gordon of Straloch (1580-1661), at an unknown date after 1633. Gordon is known to have relied heavily on the observations of Timothy Pont, compiled in the last two decades of the sixteenth century, but the very large scale and the fact that this was Gordon's home area suggests that there may be an unusual element of originality in the map.
