By Dr Johnson, published 1775. It is a narrative of the tour undertaken by Boswell and Johnson in 1773 in Scotland and the Hebrides. (For Boswell's account, see Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides.) It describes Johnson's response to Scottish history, culture, and landscape, and on publication aroused the wrath of Macpherson because of its sceptical comments on the authenticity of ‘Ossian’.
