£5
Little Assynt

The North West Highlands Geopark is pleased to welcome Dr Elizabeth Ritchie (University of the Highlands and Islands) to give a talk on the Clearances.

Elizabeth is an incredibly engaging speaker who has strong ties with the North of Scotland, it’s people past and present and the landscape.

This talk will focus on the Clearances on the Sutherland estate especially, using them as examples of broader trends.
