Glencalvie: "The wicked generation"
Glencalvie: "The wicked generation"
In 1845 the population of Glen Calvie were evicted from their homes in one of the better documented acts of clearance. The land was reassigned to sheep farming and the local tenants were in the way and removed.
The people sheltered in foul weather in the kirkyard at Croick.They would not enter the church out of respect. Some wrote their names and dates on the window where they remain to this day. The description of themselves as the "wicked generation" suggests that they saw their plight in some way as God's retribution.
