The Scottish Clan system starts to be dismantled in the middle of the 18th Century by the British Government & King George II following the final Jacobite rebellion of 1745.
The Highland clearances follow and the subsequent forced migration of Scots throughout the world is one of many reasons why Scotland is a destination for so many.
Scotland has been voted one of the best destinations in the world by Rough Guide.
