|This is a map of the Shetland Islands and the Orkney Islands that reside to the north east of Scotland. They don't normally lay side by side as shown. That is just to balance the space of the layout.|

Great map - very intricate. Surprisingly, some of the odder sounding names are actually real. I'm guessing some aren't, though.
The only recommendation I would make would be to connect South Dunrossness to Foula. Armies can get bottled up in that dead-end.

There were only about 4 or 5 names I had to make up for this. All the rest are real.

i like it. might be good for 3 vs 3, or singles with wastelands
Review by Seraph on 7/18/2017.
This is a very nice map and very fun to play on. The map can probably work for all player modes including 1v2, 2v2, and 3v3. It's a sort of large-ish map for a 1v1 though, but the settings can be altered to accommodate that. The connections allow you to reach the other islands without too much difficulty. The megabonuses are very rewarding using the default setting. To make the map more 'strategic' you can lower the mega values, add wastelands and random warlords distribution.

Very fun map to play, but some of the territory shapes are off and the artwork could be better.

Great map, but I wasn't quite keen on the names of the places such as "Da Niggards", "Ladies hole" and "Gentlemen's ha".
