The Cruise of the Betsey

The Royal Scottish Geographical Society and the Friends of Hugh Miller are chartering a traditional sailing boat for a week in September 2014, to follow the journey of discovery taken by Hugh Miller in the summer of 1844 on the sail boat, the Betsey. The project will celebrate the life and achievements of a great Scot, a great scientist but also a remarkable observer of the social history of the time.
I've been involved with the project by providing a framework for some stories based around the journey which will be taking place in the 2nd week of September. 

I'll not be able to join the voyage in person, but you'll be able to follow on the website (which we're creating at the moment, and the Twitter feed for the project, which has just been set up here.

Follow the voyage in the start of the September...
