ABSTRACT
The article offers information regarding the tour of Bob Jones, a tour coach, in the wilder glens of Scotland. According to the article, Jones swept by, full of wraith-like tourists, all voraciously consuming information from a pocket computers (PDA) clutched before their eyes or a mobile phone wired into their ears. It reveals that the coach did not pause but pressed on through the place with hardly a blink of duled eyes, hurrying to the next em-rout tacky tartan giftie shop.
