What do you want to know? The forum, map making, commenting on others' maps?

If you want Photoplus or Paint Shop Pro , Balsiefen, I have both. If you want to send it to me or you could come round to work on it. Let me know. If you send it to me, tell me what to do with it.

I know we don't want the map any longer, but you really should have the Shetlands Isles there to complete the map, or else it's not really Scotland.

It could be done as it is on many maps as a boxed off island anywhere on the right hand side of the map.

Don't worry about graphics now. Make the map fun to play (borders, bonus, territory count). Once all of that is agreed upon, then make the map look good.

No point in making a good looking map when you need to change it every 5 days to fix a little gameplay issue.

I would make a current map with all of your borders and bonuses. That way people can see everything all at once.

more lochs!

http://www.scotlandthemovie.com/movies/flochalsh.html

maybe you can even use them to split the huge Inverness?

and even if they have no effect on gameplay they should still be there visually

and better/more detailed borders would be nice, but I guess you plan to do that later..
