Hi there, a few of us from Dublin heading to the mainland to do a bit of touring.
We have a route picked out from a guidebook that goes this way but the book is really old. Planning to get maps so we don't get lost and can see whats around. but not sure what scale to get or what would be overkill.
Went looking yesterday and found a few at 1: 800,000 and 1: 1,000,000. From experience can anyone help. We might be camping rough some nights so a more detailed map might be good for figuring where to head for (near rivers or beach or lakes). I expect that i'd need a really detailed map to figure some of that out, but can't really afford to buy a load of maps.
Thinking now maybe I should buy a large scale map for now and buy smaller scale over there if we find we need them.
