    Not so long ago, the impressive Benchichins Mountains lay between Deeside and Angus, until their sudden obliteration in the hands of mapmakers. In this fully illustrated talk, Map Curator Chris Fleet looks at various other things on maps that might never have been really out there, as well as how maps lie, distort the truth and miss things out. How far should we trust the map, and is this a good idea?
