A valuable study of the social and economic upheavals which affected the western seaboard districts in the 19th century, giving as a case history the Morvern experience of the clearances, the frequent changes in land ownership and the varied reaction of owners to the lure of higher rents for depopulated sheep runs as revealed in the evidence extracted by the Napier Crofters Commission in 1883. The Macdonalds of Glenaladale and of Borrodale bought estates in Morvern around 1800, and although neither family settled on these estates they had sold out to others before any of the more drastic clearances for sheep farming were undertaken by subsequent owners. There is a fascinating wealth of local detail for anyone who knows and loves Morvern. R.M.G.
