    Alexander J Adie travelled through Galloway to Belfast and Dublin, then through North Wales, returning to Edinburgh through Newcastle. His journal describes the countryside and people, but his interest was primarily in bridges, mines, railways and other engineering works. There are detailed descriptions, with small sketches, of a descent in a diving bell (folio 19) and visits to a salt mine (folio 37) and iron works (folio 50).
