Forest Map of Shieldhill

Year: 1816

The Forest Map of 1816 showing Shieldhill contains considerably more detail than William Roy’s map of 1752. The map indicates the growing importance of neighbouring Huntfield.

The Chancellors had continued to expand their designed landscape with further tree planting.
