The period from the mid-eighteenth century saw Scotland experience a profound transformation in terms of its economy, industry and society in what was to prove the very essence of an industrial revolution. By the 1830s Scotland was fast becoming one of the most industrialised and urbanised countries in the world and was ranked second only to England and Wales. One of the main factors associated with this transformation was that it stimulated population growth and encouraged population movement. This article examines these factors for the period c.1851 to 1931.
