In 1773 the literary Scottophobe Samuel Johnson, and his friend and biographer James Boswell, embarked on a tour of Scotland from the central belt to the Western Isles.  

Come along for the ride as Joe Waterfield uses Historic Environment Scotland (HES) archive photographs and drawings to recreate this unforgettable journey. 

This talk was previously delivered at the HES Archives at John Sinclair House, Edinburgh, although this new outing will include more images and anecdotes related to Boswell and Johnson in and around Glasgow.
