Cannae trust these cartographers...

Having a wee look at some National Library of Scotland maps using the updated sheet viewer and came across literally hundreds of mistakes.

Roteton is apparently the new name for Royston/Garngad, Camlachie prefers to sound like a kebab - Calamachie and railway lines just stop abruptly and re-appear at Springburn/St. Rollox. Port Englinton anyone???

How many more can you spot?

Some mistakes are on purpose to catch out copiers
