A detailed and attractive 19th century map of the Outer Hebrides and the Scottish highland counties of Sutherland and Caithness, which was produced by William Nightingale Hughes (1817-1876) for The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (London: Virtue & Co., 1868). An interesting feature is the depiction of the Victorian railway network running through the counties.
