While Johnson focuses on Scotland itself, Boswell is even keener on presenting his friend to the notables of his homeland. Both books reveal much of Samuel Johnson, one of England’s ‘greats’ little known to me, but it was the lesser character, Boswell, that drew me to re-read this, as he has played a part in a book I read recently, called Fled (thanks again for the recommendation, Beata, I’ve passed it on to several people).

Johnson and Boswell toured the Highlands and islands by carriage, on horseback and by boat, planning the stages of their journey to stay at the houses of the local gentry.

Samuel Johnson and James Boswell spent the autumn of 1773 touring the Highlands and the Western Islands of Scotland. Both kept detailed notes of their impressions and later published separate accounts of their journey together. The account of their great tour is one of the finest pieces of travel writing ever produced: it is a magnificent historical document and also a portrait of two extraordinary personalities.In the vivid prose of theses two famous men of letters, the Highlands and the Western Islands spring to life. The juxtaposition of the two very different accounts creates an unsurpassed portrait of a society which was utterly alien to the Europe of the Enlightenment, and straining on the brink of calamitous change. This great masterpiece, entertaining, profound, and marvellously readable is also our last portrait of a lost age and people.

Johnson was elderly and had never been in good health, yet he undertook this arduous journey over difficult terrain and across rough seas to investigate a part of Britain which was utterly different from his London life among cultural celebrities. His unquenchable curiosity shines through his account of a Scotland of great contrasts: from Edinburgh, a star of the European Enlightenment, to the far-flung island communities where civility maintained a difficult foothold. In these days in which the project of a United Kingdom is being challenged, this is an informative and thought-provoking book which gives a picture of a very distinctive Scotland still largely unaffected by the Act of Union of 1707.
