Scottish Highland Clearances


"In the second phase, landlords moved to the more draconian policy of expelling people from their estates.


This was increasingly associated with 'compulsory emigration', in which landlords cancelled rent arrears and paid the passage of the 'redundant' families in their estates to North America and, eventually, Australia. The process reached a climax during the potato famine of 1846–55."
