HISTORY OF THE HIGHLAND CLEARANCES Alexander Mackenzie 1979
“How we enjoyed ourselves in those far away days! Those were the happy days and there was neither sin nor sorrow in the world for us. Bu the clearances came upon us, destroying all… turning our joy into misery, our gladness into bitterness, our blessing into blasphemy… Oh dear man, the tears come on my eyes when I think of all we suffered, and of the sorrows, hardships and oppressions we came through.” Peggy MacCormack, Lochboisdale.
