Failte gu Fuadach nan Gaidhealt na h-Alba.
The Highland Clearances were a devestating part of the history of Scotland. For many it changed not only their way of life but also shaped the rural future of Scotland. Many villagers suffered at the hands of their landlords and tackmen and fought a desperate struggle to find a new life. Others managed to propser in a new life that never saw them return to Scotland again. Here is a resource that supports the documentation and historical value of this important area of Scottish history. You can follow in the footsteps of these villagers and find detailed descriptions and locations of the remains of some of the villages and townships through site descriptions, photographs and suggestions for further reading and links to follow.

Sellar Stone. (© Author)




Sellar Stone. (NM 757 533 GB Grid Located Outside Morven at the Ardtornish Estate which was aquired by Patrick Sellar (1780-1851). The original house is no longer there. The stone provided Sellar with a viewing platform over his estate.

Worthy of a visit, just to see the estate which is a lovely horticultural development and to see the stone.
