Journey to the Western Isles - Aug
And of course, we're actually all just fine and organised, as usual.
This tour takes its name, Journey to the Western Isles, from the 18th Century diaries of Dr Johnson and James Boswell who made a Grand Tour in 1783/4. Young Boswell was keen to show his native country to the elderly Londoner, a man resplendent in opinions and more opinions, most of which were wrong.
Boswell persuaded Johnson to leave in Edinburgh the pair of pistols he had purchased for protection when north of the Highland line.
We hopefully will go with a more open mind to the outer isles. Na h-Eileanan a Siar. The Isles of the West.
We'll see you in the blog from tomorrow onwards.
