This Fertile Land is another in the series of pieces inspired by reading about the Highland Clearances in novels by Neil Gunn and Lewis Grassic Gibbon.

So many clues to a time and place once thriving, buzzing with activity, 

but now eerily deserted and left to the elements

Tumbled stone ruins and dry stone walls, furrowed fields scar this ancient, wind-battered landscape
