The story of the Highland Clearances is well-known. One of the consequences was that those tenants who didn’t emigrate were forced on to marginal small-holdings called ‘crofts’ on the coast of the Highlands and many Island communities. What was life like? Where are the records? How can they be found? Many communities are compiling Croft Histories which are invaluable aids to tracing this unique lifestyle. Mike’s father was born in the same croft that had been in the family for hundreds of years, and still is.
