    Abstract

    From the mid-nineteenth century until the end of WWI the Sutherland estates was, at 1.1 million acres, the largest landed estate in western Europe. This book studies the workings of the estate management and policy formation in the face of challenges from their crofting tenants and government; asks whether the family experienced a 'decline and fall' as argued for the British aristocracy in this period and examines acrucual period of Highland history from the neglected perspective of a landed estate.
