If anyone has one to hand can you check whether it has the area north of Glenfinnan to where their Knoydart map starts? I'm trying to order one of the internet and it doesn't seem to give what area it covers. Also if that one doesn't is there another Harveys map that does?? Ta muchly :)

Knoydart is covered by Landranger 33; for the bit North of the Glenfinnan/Mallaig road you'll also need Landranger 40. There's a bit of an overlap.
If you're going up Gulvain, the normal approach is on Landranger 40 and the summit is on Landranger 41. I suspect many people don't get further than the subsidiary top, on Landranger 40, when it's claggy and they haven't double-checked!

In reply to canisp: The Harveys BMC map area is linked on here:

It doesn't go to your area.

You can see the coverage of the Knpydart map here:
http://www.harveymaps.co.uk/acatalog/Knoydart___Kintail.html

It doesn't appear to cover Glenfinnan

Nope... stops about 1km north of a line from Torlundy to N end of Loch Treig.

I think I have the one you mean "British Mountain Maps - Ben Nevis & Glencoe" from Harveys/BMC. The furthest NW it goes is to Corpach.
Ben Nevis is near the top of the map, it extends SW as far as Creach Bheinn/Beinn Sgulaird, SE to Achallader farm and NE to Fersit.

cool thanks couldn't find a website which had the areas on. Pretty annoying that the area falls through the gap! Maybe I'll just make it up walking in or buy one of those pesky OS maps that I hate so much and get my scissors out to make it less bulky and irritating. Rant over!

You can print off sections of this if you dont want to buy another map, or get one printed by OS centred on the hills you want on the join. Details on the link I posted

Somehow you can alter the number of squares to get it bigger than standard, play around with it.

Remember that bit will not be to scale
