The 1745 Jacobite uprising made little impact politically in Easter Ross, but the legal and social reforms stemming from it affected the area; the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions first made a significant impact in the region from that time. The century from 1750 to 1850 saw a complete transformation of agricultural practice, a revolution in transport, the rise and decline of the textile industry and a major social upheaval. This book examines in detail the changes that took place in the area during the period - a frontier in time between the old and the new.
