Scotland Magazine: The Highland Clearances

The latest issue (No. 116: May/June 2021) features an article focused on The Highland Clearances of Sutherland, written by no-less than our very own guide Robert! Having completed a project on one aspect of the ‘Clearances’ for his ongoing degree - the History, Heritage and Culture of the North Highlands, he was so taken by the ‘story’ that he has continued his journey of discovery into the truth and detail of what happened during those turbulent times in Scottish history by continuing his research.

The SCOTLAND Magazine article (just the first part of two – read the second half in the July/August issue) just skims the surface of what occurred. But if you would love to know the truth, experience some of the sights and learn about the two sides of the story, then why not consider our NEW 3-day HIGHLAND CLEARANCES EXPLORER TOUR.

For more information, see the OUR TOURS page and read our Highlands Clearances Tour BLOG.
