I’m creating a little series about ‘the Crofters’ just for fun .
I love Scottish history and I’m currently learning about the Highland Clearances and the Crofters 🐓 .
The Scottish farming families were run out of their community farms to make way for big farms for Cow farming and pastoral farming – the leaders in the cities thought this would bring more profit into the city.
The Highland folk were unfortunately run out of their cottages and farms and forced to the coastal areas or even emigrated abroad.
The Crofters moved in and here is a little collection of paintings about life in the crofts.
I am going to eventually turn this into a little children’s book. 🐓
