Highland Clearances

This will begin as a random collection of references.
For Ardchattan, we were not a Jacobite parish, as the heritors - Campbells of Barcaldine, Lochnell, Ardchattan, Inverawe etc were Hanovarian supporters.
So to understand how our area was affected in this time of land improvements, incoming sheep farming, sales of land we will have to explore the differences here, to the rest of the Highlands.
