Maps marked “OL” are Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps, and have lots of detail – best for remote, unfamiliar areas with few obvious natural features, where detailed navigation is necessary. Maps marked “LR” are Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 maps; these contain less detail – smaller, less significant paths are omitted where they might be included in OL maps. These are better for longer treks covering large distances over multiple days, where OL maps would be impractical. BMC maps are 1:40,000, so are not as detailed as OL’s, but more so than LR’s. BMC maps are specifically tailored to cover areas of interest for hillwalking and mountaineering (where you might have a really annoying city plonked in the middle of your Ordnance Survey Map), so you won’t need an awkwardly wide range of different maps to cover the area you want. They also include a lot of extra information relevant to hillwalkers (such as colour coding for elevation and terrain), but less of the irrelevant stuff! Finally, they are also printed on plastic, making them lightweight, durable and waterproof.
