Wandelkaart Topografische kaart OL39 Explorer Lomond North Tyndrum Crianlarich Arrochar | Ordnance Survey

Met zijn 4cm voor 1 km (2 ½ cm voor 1 mijl) schaal, is de OS Explorer kaartenserie de ideale en meest gedetailleerde kaartenreeks voor mensen die graag outdoor-activiteiten zoals fietsen, wandelen, paardrijden, klimmen en watersporten.

Deze kaart is nog gedetailleerder dan de 'gewone' Landranger maps. Voor- en achterzijde bedrukt! Zeker op de moors en andere natuurgebieden van onschatbare waarden met echt alle aspecten van het landschap op de kaart ingetekend. Zeer goede detailkaart met topografische ondergrond. Hierop zijn toeristische symbolen van bezienswaardigheden ingetekend, daarnaast staan bijvoorbeeld campings en jeugdherbergen vermeld en - voor wandelaars het belangrijkst - alle right of way paden en Lange afstands Wandelpaden zijn er op te vinden. De ideale kaart voor het wandelen in Engeland, Wales of Schotland.
 
Map sheet number OL 39 in the OS Explorer series covers the northern area of Loch Lomond, the towns of Tyndrum, Ardlui, Crianlarich and Arrochar. Highlights of the area include: Loch Lomond, Ben Lomond, Cruinn a Bheinn, Ben Donich, Ben Glas, Bheinn Chas, Meall Mor, Loch Latrine and Loch Long. This map replaces the previous OS Explorer map 364 for this area
 
 
These highly detailed maps show all the administrative boundaries, settlements as small as isolated farms, the road network down to unfenced roads and country tracks, and field boundaries (hedges and drystone walls) which make navigation across the countryside much easier. Steep gradients on roads are indicated. Various landmarks, e.g. powerlines, archaeological sites, windmills, churches and lighthouses are shown and additional graphics indicate natural terrain features such as cliffs, scree, mud and vegetation variations. The contour interval is 5 metres in the lower parts of the country and 10 metres in the uplands, and spot heights are marked. Each map covers an area of 30 x 20km (i.e. approx. 19 x 12 miles), with some double-sided maps covering more, as indicated in the individual descriptions. The maps are fully GPS compatible, with the National Grid shown at 1km intervals and latitude and longitude indicated by margin ticks at 1'.
 
The Explorer series has replaced the earlier, green-cover Pathfinder maps. The Explorer series is now complete and covers all of England, Wales & Scotland. Some sheets for popular areas like the National Parks are still branded as Outdoor Leisure (OL) maps, but are now included in this series as the cartography is the same as that in the Explorer Maps. The Explorer maps offer a substantial improvement on the Pathfinder series, with greater use of colour, larger area per map, and stronger emphasis on information for ramblers and tourists.
 
This series is ideal for walking and other outdoor pursuits and each map shows a large amount of information for ramblers and tourists. Public rights of way are shown (except in Scotland), together with other routes with public access: National Trails and Recreational Paths, permitted paths and bridleways, and selected cycle routes. Open access land created under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 is marked. Tourist information includes caravan and camp sites, Park & Ride locations, recreation/leisure/sport centres, museums, historic buildings, English Heritage and National Trust sites, rural pubs, etc. The map legend is in English only, except for the tourist information content which is also in French and German
