The largest map of Scotland ever produced has been unveiled in Edinburgh.

School children helped put together the 167 plastic jigsaw pieces, which make up Mapland Scotland.

The giant map measures 15 metres by eight metres - roughly the size of a badminton court.

It features the country's lochs, countryside and mountains. Children from Liberton Primary School assembled the map at Dynamic Earth.

It will be hired out to schools and rambling clubs.
