Lochaber no More', 1886. Dispossessed Scottish crofters, victims of the Highland clearances, taking their last view of home as they depart on board a ship. From the mid 18th century onwards landowners in the Highlands and islands began replacing their tenants with sheep which were more profitable. With no alternative means of earning a living available to them in the Highlands, the evicted tenants were forced to emigrate, amny of them travelling to North America or Australasia.
