The Clearance in Southwest Scotland + the future of our land

The Lowland Clearances? We will be joined by Scotland’s most distinguished historian to explore the past and think about the future.

We have heard about the Highland Clearances but how did the clearances impact on communities of Southern Scotland and the Borders?

Professor Sir Tom Devine, Scotland’s most distinguished historian and author of “The Scottish Clearances: A History of the Dispossessed 1600-1900”, will share with us what happened across Scotland with a focus on the clearances in the lowlands including Galloway.

This talk will be followed by an overview from The Scottish Land Commission about today’s land use challenges, and how communities can get involved.
