Inspired by the 17th C. Japanese poet Matsuo Basho, whose epic ‘Oku-no-hosomichi’ (Narrow Road to the Deep North) is a masterpiece of travel literature, Scottish artist Alec Finlay & writer Ken Cockburn journeyed through their own homeland in 2010/11. On their way they composed The Road North, a word map of Scotland. The journey took in 53 ‘stations’, number 32 being Huntly. Stirred by their stay at Coynachie guesthouse, Alex produced this work for the town collection.
