Boswell and Johnson

A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland and The Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides

"a book by Samuel Johnson, published in 1775. The Journey was the result of a three-month trip to Scotland that Johnson took with James Boswell in 1773. It contains Johnson's descriptions of the customs, religion, education, trade, and agriculture of a society that was new to him. The account in Boswell's diary, published after Johnson's death as The Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides, with Samuel Johnson, (1785), offers an intimate personal record of Johnson's behavior and conversation during the trip."
