BBC TV – Secret Britain
The Great Polish Map features as one of Britain’s hidden gems in April 2015:
The World’s Largest?
Solid Terrain Modelling Inc. and British Columbia Province in Canada report “the world’s largest physical terrain model” here.
It has an area of 276 sq.m. The Great Polish Map of Scotland has a land area alone of 780 sq.m. and is therefore 2.83 times greater in area than the BC model. So it is the “largest in the world” until someone can reveal the existence of an even larger terrain map.

Restoring the Great Polish Map of Scotland.
“This relationship between Scotland and Poland is, I think, symbolised very appropriately in the
Great Polish Map of Scotland, and that’s why it’s so important that it’s restored.” —Christine Grahame MSP
