National Library of Scotland updates Curious Travellers map

The National Library of Scotland ( has updated its Curious Travellers map at, to allow users a chance to follow in the footsteps of Johnson and Boswell as they toured around the country in 1773.

The four-year project was launched in September 2014 by the University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies (CAWCS) and the University of Glasgow, with its priorty being the writings of Flintshire naturalist and antiquarian Thomas Pennant (1726-1798), who travelled across both Scotland and wales and recorded his observations along the way.
