Tristan Travels. 

Our Scottish Officer Jim McIntosh wowed botanists at the recent Recorders Conference with a talk about his year spent on Tristan da Cunha. 

But for those of us who couldn't make it to Shrewsbury earlier this month, Jim's Blog 'Tristan Travels' gives a fascinating glimpse into what a botanist might get up to on a remote island thousands of miles away from his native Scotland.

'Tristan Travels' is a dormant Blog, as Jim is now safely back at work at RBGE, but it's a great read nonetheless and I don't suppose Tristan has changed that much since Jim sailed home last year.
