In 1989, the Scottish artist and author Mairi Hedderwick came across John T Reid’s Art Rambles in the Highlands and Islands, which records his sketching tours of 1876. In 1990, she set off to retrace Reid’s journey and record the same scenes that he sketched 114 years earlier. The eight rambles around Scotland are described in Hedderwick’s intensely personal and very entertaining commentary, but also in excerpts from Reid’s writings, and his engravings sit alongside her watercolours. New edition.
