The record of a tour through Scotland in the wake of Samuel Johnson and James Boswell. To be sure such was the intention, but the tour took many side paths, (""yarrowings""), and buses and steamers and various modern means of locomotion were employed to ease the way. With occasional connecting links of description and explanation, the book is primarily a series of dialogues dealing with everything under the sun, -- literature, sports, Sherlock Holmes, and now and again references and discussions of Boswell's and Johnson's points of view. Not a guidebook, but delightful reading for anyone who knows the Hebrides. Human, humorous, refreshingly different.
