Modern Electoral Wards of Lewis & Harris

I had been attempting to find a map to help with navigating around the various divisions of the islands when a friend (Many thanks, MM) pointed-out to me this excellent OS (Ordnance Survey) facility: http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/opendata/viewer/

If you open the viewer, move and zoom into ‘OUTER HEBRIDES’ at the middle level of zoom, you can then open the ‘Boundary Layer’ dialogue box. Scrolling down to Scotland and selecting ‘Unitary Authority Ward’ will then enable you to see those divisions highlighted as you move the cursor around the islands. The name of each Ward, in Gaelic, appears in a box at the bottom right-hand corner of the map.

Now all I want is the same thing for the Old Parishes and the smaller districts within them!
