This work resulted from a ten-day meandering circular walk in the Scottish Highlands. Each section describes the work in different ways. The left hand section bears the title, which for Long ‘embodies the idea of the walk’. The central section lists chronologically the places he passed on the walk. The right section describes Long’s ‘ideas, thoughts and experiences mixed up and floated in time’.
Long used a map, which though full of names was otherwise largely featureless (he was mainly walking in wilderness). Long brings together the objective information from the map and the experiences he had on the walk.
