"O would some power the giftie gie us to see ourselves as others see us!" So wrote the Scottish bard, Robvert Burns in his ode "To a Louse".
A three-strong team from Italy is circumnavigating the Scottish Highlands and blogging about their adventure in exquisite Italnglish.
It's fascinating to read their (brief) observations as they pass through our home waters. Recent update: "We set our camp on Lismore Island with sheeps, ticks and wild gooses".
They've picked an ambitious route (pdf download) which will take them from Canna to South Uist, then back from North Uist to Skye. They'll also round Cape Wrath, Cailean did recently for his guide-book.
I hope we bump into them soon.
