Music from Scotland’s Clearances Trail
The Official Soundtrack

Kildonan features new music inspired by events that took place in the Highlands of Scotland in the early to mid 19th Century where the local people were cleared of their land to make way for Sheep. These events became locally know as the ‘Highland Clearances’.

‘The townships in every strath and glen, and on every hill, which teemed with life, are now desolate and silent; and the only traces of the vanished, happy population are here and there, a half-buried hearthstone or a moss-grown graveyard.’

The Rev. Donald sage Circa 1818
