Clearances

How were our communities affected by clearances ?
we know people left, but were they pushed ? encouraged ? paid for ?
Where did they leave from ?
how much evidence is there of ships in Ardmucknish bay ?
It is likely that we don't have the horrors of other parts of Scotland as witnessed in so many books, articles and the Napier Commission, but are there stories of our ancestors journeys ?
