Seems to have been an enhancement overnight. Yesterday I could only zoom to 100m, today it goes down to 50m and there is a localised option of 25m. Edinburgh City Centre!!

I understand why one can't zoom in on Macrahanish and Ellon but what's happening about Aberfoyle that it's a complete white out?

Thought I'd have a wee look, and on my way zooming into Glasgow, I've found that Partick is just North off Great Western Road and Anniesland is West of Scotstoun?!
Not that I'm picking holes or anything, just a few wee creases need ironing out.

Have had another wee look, GoogleMap still shows part of the Granary buildings, while the Microsoft one shows some of the new Harbour building already constructed.
Looks like the Microsoft one is more up to date, well in that area anyway!

You're right, bits of it seem to be missing now. GK may have a direct line to Bill & Melinda of course. :D
