"A Journey to the Western Isles: Johnson's Scottish Journey Retraced by Finlay J. Macdonald" Dr Samuel Johnson wrote of his tour of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland 'I got an acquisition of more ideas by it than by any thing that I remember'. Two hundred years later, Finlay J. Macdonald, whose "Crowdie and Cream" talks have delighted thousands of BBC radio listeners, has retraced Dr Johnson's route. Contrasting charming period views with stunning newly-commissioned photographs, he comments on the way his own native Scotland was seen by that archetypal Englishman (who may, through his "Dictionary", have had more influence than any other writer on the traditional view of Englishness). Much has changed but much has stayed the same. And this lovely book, reproducing Johnson's original text with Finlay J. Macdonald's irrepressible comments, provides a remarkably colourful and refreshing view of the changes since his forerunner's tour and the beauty and novelty still to be enjoyed there.
