  • Croick Old Parish #Church #Ardgay #Sutherland #scotland. During the Highland Clearances, on the 24th of May 1845. Eighteen families, around 90 people, were cleared from their homes in the glen, taking refuge in the church yard, sheltering from the elements under tarpaulins. As they passed the time in these wretched conditions some of them scratched messages in the panes of glass in the east window of the church. "Glencalvie people was in the churchyard here May 24 1845", "Glencalvie tenants residing here" and most poignantly "Glencalvie people, the wicked generation", a reflection perhaps that these people felt that the evictions were a punishment for their sins.
