Abstract

The bulk of Scottish society lies within an urban setting yet many studies of mapping by Scots concentrate on rural estates. Many significant elements in the development of Glasgow's town plan in the later eighteenth century were surveyed by the one man, James Barrie. His involvement in drawing plans of the River Clyde, surveying highways and laying out streets for both private speculators and the city authorities is detailed as a contribution towards the wider study of urban cartography.
