It is a travelogue that encapsulates Johnson's eighty-three days' journey to Scotland and the islands of Hebrides in 1773. Johnson has portrayed Scotland by depicting the scenes picturesquely. The whole panorama enhances reader's interest to an utmost pleasure. Johnson has recorded and commented on the Scottish life including all its peculiarities. Interesting!
