    Apologies if this is old news, but any pre-publication publicity had certainly escaped me...

    Browsing the Harvey Maps website I've just stumbled across the Harveys/BMC map for Snowdonia - 1:40,000, waterproof material, extra info on the back etc. - just like the wonderful Lake District one that came out about this time last year.

    The website says 12.95 (+1.50p&p) and available from October 25th i.e Wednesday.
    It's also in the shop on the BMC website, also 12.95, or only 9.95 for BMC members, and 1 p&p, but says available early November.

    No doubt it'll hit the shops more generally fairly soon...
    I've ordered mine!

    Good to hear it... and I hope they do many more areas.

    However...

    I have to say that the geological map on the back of the Lake District map is no use whatsoever, and I hope they replace it in due course. The colours on the geological map bear no relation to the legend, and I don't understand why everything has to be skewed and blurry. I have a good working knowledge of Lakeland geology, but this map is totally confused.

    Also, the map isn't quite indestructable. I've already managed to scratch the print off two points of my Lake district map. Quite impressive considering I only used it for one and a half days!

    So although you can't rip it, you can scratch off your route!
