Geographer draws London Tube-style map of Scotland’s Munros
Peter Burgess, a former geography teacher living in East Ham in London, created the MunrOverground.
It shows Munros - mountains higher than 3,000ft - and landscapes such as Linn of Dee in Aberdeenshire.
The geographer previously created Tubular Fells, a topological map of England's Lakeland Fells.
The new map groups Scotland's mountains into a number of lines, including the Skye Line, the Knoydart, Skye and Affric Line and the Southern Hills.
These are "blended" with the national rail network and long distance paths such as the West Highland Way, Sutherland Trail and Great Glen Way.
The John Muir Trust and Scottish Mountain Rescue will receive a donation from every map sold.
Mr Burgess said he had enjoyed mapping Scotland.
He said: "I've not climbed many Munros, but a tally approaching 40 isn't too bad.
"I've climbed lots of the lesser hills, with Suilven being one of my favourites."
