The Road North

For the past year Alec Finlay and Ken Cockburn have been travelling through Scotland, guided by the Japanese poet Basho, whose Oku-no-Hosomichi (Narrow Road to the Deep North) is one of the masterpieces of travel literature. Ken and Alec left Edinburgh on 16 May 2010 – the same date that Basho and his companion Sora departed Edo in 1689 – and they will celebrate the culmination of their year-long journey on 15 May 2011, at Glasgow's hidden gardens
