The Highland Clearances - I had heard about that, but never in any detail; the word "clearances" suggested people being displaced and forced to emigrate from the Scottish Highlands, moving South or overseas, to the United States, Canada or Australia. IThe Clearances were much complicated, with some places becoming actually OVERpopulated, with people forced to live with access to less and less land and fishing.

Calum's Road is a true story - the reaction of one man to the devastation brought by the clearances. One man who decided to give an almost deserted place a chance of living again by building a road to it, single-handedly, over ten years. A story of endurance and courage.
