The Napier Commission report of Her Majesty's Commissioners of Inquiry Into the Condition of the Crofters and Cottars in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland was published in 1884 and has since become one of the most significant resources for the period during and after the Highland Clearances. We are delighted to announce that the Centre for History has taken over the hosting of the digital version of the report from West Highland College UHI (formerly Lochaber College), enabling new students to access the resource online.
