Barony Castle Hotel sits just outside the village of Eddleston near Peebles in the Scottish Borders. Built in the 16th-century this historic house hides a little known Scottish secret thanks to a Polish war veteran called Jan Tomasik.
Between 1974 and 1979 Tomasik put an amazing plan into action and with a lot of hard work created the world’s largest terrain relief model. The massive 50m x 40m three-dimensional concrete scale model of Scotland is also known as “The Great Polish Map”, “Barony Map” and “Mapa Scotland”.
Of course it’s only when you get above this massive creation that you can really understand the detail that has went into it.
