A map of a part of the Borders, covering Teviotdale and the catchments of the Rule Water, Ale Water, Ettrick Water and Yarrow Water, and on the north bank of the River Tweed, between Coldstream and Traquair, the catchments of the Gala Water, Leader Water and Eden Water. The map was compiled by Robert Gordon of Straloch (1580-1661), at an unknown date after 1633. The source of the compilation was the observations of Timothy Pont, in the last two decades of the sixteenth century. Another map by Gordon with similar coverage is extant in the National Library of Scotland, in a different collection (Advocates MS.15.1.1).
