By Peter Aitchison and Andrew Cassell

The Lowland Clearances swept aside a traditional way of life, causing immense upheaval and suffering for country people, many of whom had to move to towns and cities or emigrate. Based on pioneering historical research, this book tells the story of the Lowland Clearances, putting them in the wider context of a brutal programme which affected the whole country and changed the face of Scotland forever. It is a tale of greed and injustice, cruelty and exploitation, which must never be forgotten.
