Crofting
Douglas Willis

5" x 7 3/4" • 166 pages • B&W plate section
ISBN 9780859765466 • paperback • $13.95

The crofting landscape of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, characterized by small landholdings, townships with their clusters of croft houses and areas of common grazing, is one of the most distinctive in all of Western Europe. Crofting as a way of life has been an integral part of the culture of this part of Scotland for almost 200 years. This revised edition of Douglas Willis's classic book tells the story of human settlement in the Highland and Islands from the earliest times, and traces key events in the history of crofting and landownership, from Culloden, the Clearances and the Napier Commission to the present day.
